The Loot!!

 Here is my take from The Lancaster Yarn Shop

Pretty yarn and I LOVED this yarn jar...

 you put your yarn inside, while you are knitting,
pull it out of the hole on the top,
to prevent your yarn from rolling around on the floor!

On the back of the jar, the definition of yarn & knitting is included.
"yarn...a continous strand of twisted threads of synthetic or
natural material, such as wool or cotton,
used in weaving or knitting".
"knitting...a long often elaborate narrative of real or fictitious adventures".

Two "hanks" of blue, one of gray,

someday I hope to make this Murmuration Shawl with the yarn,
 is it not gorgeous?!

  5. The yarn is beautiful, and it would make up so nicely into that shawl. I remember your first knitting post, and it's just amazing how far you've taken it already. I can truly see you wrapped up in that shawl before the snow flies again.

  8. Are you sure you weren't a photo designer type person in a former life or something like that? You know - the one who stages the merchandise to make it look gORgeous for the photo shoot?

  13. I love those colors of yarn. That blue is fantastic. I am glad you bought one of those jars. I thought they were nifty. I just use a coffee can with a hole in the lid. The jar would be so much more fun. Have a lovely day.

  14. Love, love, love both the yarn and the shawl. I am jealous.... our local yarn shop has changed owners and the yarn is not of the same quality. I really like to support local business, but I may be headed online. Who is the designer? Blue is my color!!!!

  17. Those two colors look good together. My mother & grandmother were knitters. I remember them driving out of town to purchase the best yarn. I wish I would of paid more attention when they tried to teach me
    how to knit. The jar is a great idea & love that shawl.

  21. Oh I'd love that jar - it would save my wool from my dog! I am also intrigued by the little objects at the front of your first photo - the shell and round disc; do they have a purpose apart from looking pretty?

  23. Great way to keep your yarn clean, I know with my pets the hair sticks to the yarn like a magnet. Lovely project you have in mind for it!
