I did something that I hadn’t done for a long time last Thursday; I went to a local yarn store!
I ended up at Ball & Skein in Brickerville, PA, which I have enjoyed going to before. Above is what I got.
First, I got two balls for the Frog Tree Yarns suri fingering weight yarn. I understand that the Frog Tree brand has been discontinued, but it has now been taken up under then mantle of Skacel. Cool!
The other ball of yarn I got was a big ball of Noro Taiyo cotton blend sock yarn. I sure know how to pick’em; Noro is going to be discontinuing the Taiyo yarn and replacing it more with their Silk Garden blend of sock yarn.
Now, as for the two blue skeins, I got won those in a giveaway. They are both Cotton Supreme yarn by Universal Yarn, Inc, but one is Aran weight and the other is DK weight. Both were donated by another local yarn store called Flying Fibers, and they are located in Landisville, PA.
So, those have been my luxury yarn acquisitions of recent, considering it’s been a long time since I’ve had any luxury yarn. It feels good to be in possession of some again!
