and just how should one feel after major Stash Enhancement?
Alrighty now – I’ve been on the quest for super work sweaters for awhile now, and the yarns to make them. One of the most elusive candidate fibers thus far has been something called Bluefaced Leicester. Lustrous. Strong. Hard-wearing.
Do I let a little thing like the Atlantic get in the way of my Quest?
No need! All I need(ed) was a little help from my friend(s) – and Rachel, who’s fancy footwork unearthed a load of this fine fiber, joined me on the Metra Saturday for a field trip to Glenview, Il. home of The Village Knit Whiz yarn shop.
948 Harlem (Olympia Plaza) Glenview, IL
These fine folks had small stock of same and we had a fine day exploring their excellent collection of yarns.
Into my arms, leap-o Navy Divine! 15 balls of discontinued Berroco Connoisseur Collection Blue Faced Leicester destined to become an aran design this fall…
But in the meantime? A few balls of some denimy cotton blend DK by Zitron called POLO – on the needles before the BFL reaches the start point?
