Yesterday was Christmas, but today was the day when I got all kinds of new yarn!  Critter Bug and I went out today to hit the sales (and spend some Christmas money).  After the obligitory mall stop for new (badly needed) clothes, we went to Jo-Ann’s.  They had all their yarn on sale.  I got 7 skeins of yarn for gnomes and such (ornaments and other small stuff).  They had all their yarn on sale. I got three skeins of Vanna’s Choice (Dusty blue, black, and taupe mist), two skeins of Wool-Ease (Cranberry and Forest Green Heather), and a skein of Patons (white) (Ravelry links).  When I got home, I had my Christmas gift to myself in the mail!

Mountain Colors Winter Lace yarn in Wild Horse!  Yes, lace yarn. I decided that I wanted a shawl.  I am going to be making the Forest Canopy Shawl (Ravelry link) with this yarn.  I am so excited. I want to have it done in time to wear it to Wicked in April.  DH is buying me tickets for my birthday!  This yarn is a wool silk blend. It is so soft.  The colors are so pretty too. I can’t wait! It is going to be lovely. I had to pick up a couple of circs in size 4 and 5 for this shawl (not sure what size needle I am going to use…I will swatch some with each and see tonight).
