Yarn Snob

I hate snobs, but I’m finding very difficult to avoid becoming a yarn snob. Last weekend, I went to my LYS (local yarn store), and I got me some 100% wool yarn and I knit my son a winter hat. That stuff feels soooooo goood!

Because of this, I’ve decided to scrap the Dr. Who Scarf. I was almost halfway through it. Not entirely, though. I’ve decided to gradually going to accumulate enough Brown Sheep Co. Nature Spun Sport Weight the pattern calls for to do this up in the proper fiber. I actually don’t mind. The pattern writer saw an actual prop scarf from the show and modified the actual colors. DH was loathe to tell me this, but in a way, it is a good thing he told me because after knitting with that very soft and wonderful natural fiber yarn, I really did not want to go back to that squeaky and scratchy acrylic yarn.

I’m going to print out a new pattern and accumulate the yarn.

Right now, I’ve also gotten half of my tank top done. I’m doing the Mudflap Girl tank from Stitch ‘n’ Bitch Nation, but it’s in pale yellow and it won’t have the mudflap girl on it. I’m not ready to try intarsia quite yet. I just want to learn how to make a garment.
