yarns yarns yarns!

Yesterday, I went with trom, Seth, kcatalyst, and their friend, Mary, to Stitches West, a fiberarts conference in Oakland. I was looking for yarn for a hat for Zach, who has requested a blue and black hat. I didn't find yarn for that, but I did find a whole lot of gorgeous yarns. I learned again that my yarn preferences are a tad pricey. Damned preferences.

At the end, I found a ton of yarns that I liked in the booth of Interlacements. I've been thinking recently about trying to make a sweater, and I bought two fabulous yarns for that project. Next, I need to find a pattern and the courage to start. But I'm really excited about it!

Ayer, fui con trom, Seth, kcatalyst, y su amiga, Mary, a Stitches West, una conferencia de tejer en Oakland. Busqué lana para hacer una gorra para Zach quien ha pedido una gorra de azul y negro. No encontré lana para eso, pero encontré muchas otras lanas muy bonitas. Aprendí, otra vez, que mis preferencias en lana son un poco caras. Malditas preferencias.

Al fin, encontré muchas lanas que me gustaron en la tienda de Interlacements. He pensado recientemente en tratar de hacer un suetér, y compré dos lanas muy bonitas para este proyecto. Proxima, necesito encontrar un deseño y el valor para empezar. ¡Estoy muy emocionada!
