So what did I come home with, you ask?
Midnight in Manhattan by Madelinetosh in Tosh Sock. I had a hard time deciding on the weight….This is an exclusive yarn to The Yarn Company. This was the first thing I bought, headed right for their booth!
This yarn I have been waiting awhile to get. I bought the pattern when I went to their store in Derry, NH and I really liked the yarn in the pattern. Alas they had just sold out of it at the NH Sheep and Wool. And they were having a problem with their distributor and sock yarn…so when I saw they were at this show, I stalked them again and yeah! They had the yarn!
Then I was wandering around and picked up a couple of Three Irish Girl skeins and looked at them. Then one of the “salespeople” said there was a pattern for those exact two colors, so what could I do? I bought both and the pattern (was surprised that pattern was not given for free with the purchase of yarn!)
Then I was done at the show….so hungry…I ended up at Rockefeller Center, down the street and had a burger…
Refreshed I headed uptown to Knitty City (that is a blog post of it’s own)
But there I purchased 4 more skeins…
a new yarn to me Wool Candy in Tweed.
So where does that leave my guessers….well WonderWHyGal guessed 4, and I did leave the show with 4 skeins. But I then bought 4 more at Knitty City…so technically I came home with 8. Noone guessed 8, so I’m going to do a random number thingy….
It did it’s thing and it picked comment #6, which bizarrely is Tammy! (Which is my given name!) So maybe I need to keep the gifty for myself? Just kidding! Congratulations Tammy!
