darn clearance bin

I went a little nuts in the clearance yarn bin at Michael's, and decided that the Knitty pattern "Fetching"would be a great Christmas pattern. The wristlets go very fast - and I wish I had a pair done now, because it's COLD outside. Brrr. All of the following yarn came from Michael's over a three day period.

  • 6 40g balls Bernat "Glow in the Dark" (70% acrylic, 30% polyester) in colorway Brilliant Blue (powder blue and white twist). This yarn actually glows in the dark! It's a bit splitty, has quite a halo, and 2 balls of the 6 are just being finished as "Fetching" wristlets.
  • 3 40g balls Bernat "Glow in the Dark" (70% acrylic, 30% polyester) in colorway Lilac Lustre (light purple and white twist).
  • 3 40g balls Bernat "Glow in the Dark" (70% acrylic, 30% polyester) in colorway Bright Blush (light pink and white twist).
  • 4 40g balls Bernat "Glow in the Dark" (70% acrylic, 30% polyester) in colorway Green Glow (light leaf green and white twist).
  • 2 60g balls Bernat "Cashmere Natural Blends" (65% acrylic, 30% nylon, 5% cashmere) in colorway Earth (rich brown).
  • 2 60g balls Bernat "Cashmere Natural Blends" (65% acrylic, 30% nylon, 5% cashmere) in colorway Coal (charcoal black).
  • 1 85g ball Bernat "Satin Sport" (100% acrylic) in colorway Taupe.
  • 1 113g ball Red Heart "Soft Yarn" (100% acrylic) in colorway Embers (brown, red, orange, cream, rust).
  • 1 141g skein Red Heart "Super Saver Multi" (100% acrylic) in colorway Peruvian Print (white, sky blue, leaf green, chocolate brown, teal blue, black/white dash). This may actually have a fair isle effect. I don't think I've seen that in RH SS before.
  • 2 50g balls Patons "Stretch Sock" (41% cotton, 29% wool, 13% nylon, 7% elastic) in colorway Mineral (sky blue, medium blue, grey, orange, brown)
  • 1 50g ball Lion Brand Yarns "Moonlight Mohair" (57% acrylic, 28% mohair, 9% cotton, 6% metallic) in colorway Safari (orange, reds, greens, black)
  • 1 170g ball Lion Brand Yarns "Vanna's Choice Print" (100% acrylic) in colorway Denim Mist (heathered blues)

I wish I could get a shot of the glow in the dark yarn - it really does glow. I think Ash and PK will like those - pink of course, for Ash, and the purple for PK.

Game 5 of the World Series has been suspended because of weather for the first time in Series history. Yahoo! has an article here, and I'm SO so so glad that Tampa tied up the game before they called a halt. The field was a real mess. I know Dan's going to smack me, but Go Rays!

Cheers!
