New Yarn and Blazing Needles

April 7, 2011

I just got back from a skiing trip out in Park City with my family but because my poor old knees don’t let me ski, I did a lot of knitting when I was out there.  I also drove to Salt Lake City to drop in at Blazing Needles, recommended to me by Susan Lawrence via Ravelry.  What a cute shop.  It’s in a residential district and I just loved the feel of the place.

 

Check out all the Koigu Yarn that they carry!  I had to hold myself back. Such a great selection:

And they had a lot of Malabrigo. Love.

Do you need buttons?  This is just a part of their incredible button selection:

I bought some Cascade 220 Superwash  along with a stripey Shibui Merino Worsted in order to make this hat by Jared Flood.

And I also bought this incredible silk yarn with glass beads by Tilli Tomas.  I just couldn’t help myself.  And guess what? It’s called Rock Star! How great is that?  I can’t wait to use it.  I bought a little cowl pattern at the store that I may use for it. Look how gorgeous this stuff is:

And here is a sneak peek at a project I’m working on that I just love:
