Worth the Wait

I wasted no time on Friday afternoon; I had been waiting long enough. As soon as I disembarked at Penn Station, I headed to The Point to collect my order of Claudia Handpainted yarn. The train karma was good that day, and I walked directly from an on-time Amtrak train straight to an A train, and I was at The Point in less than 15 minutes.

I ordered the yarn way back in early September. Since ordering, I forgot everything about this yarn. So, when I saw it again on Friday, everything about it was a suprise, especially the feel. It is some of the softest merino that I have ever felt. Have you touched this yarn yet? Be prepared. When you do get your hands on a skein, you'll want to roll around in a giant pile of the stuff.

I'll let you decide whether or not you remain clothed in this yarn fantasty.

 

Umm, yeah, I think I would want to roll around in it too. I forgot all about that yarn. Beautiful stuff!

Fabulous colors! Any plans for it?

Woohoo, more yarn! The colors are fabulous.

YU-MMY!

And you have to love The Point! That's where we moved the SNB to you know... Tuesday nights 7-9 if you're ever in town!
Cheers!

Mmm... I think I might just be developing a weakness for soft sock yarn here. Temptress!

Wait, I just went and looked at the Claudia handpainted site. I remember I looked before and became quite confused. You can only order a bag of 10 skiens. OK, I can get that. What I don't get is how she's going to charge you whatever she happens to be charging at the point at which she gets around to dying your yarn. I haven't managed to find anything on her site that even vaguely suggests what those prices might be. Could I ask how much you paid for your bag?

I've really enjoyed the socks made out of her sock yarn that Em made me. Very soft and silky.

great colors - must touch it sometime when you knit it up at KS. What will it be?

Gorgeous colors. I'm looking forward to see how it 'grows up'.

"As soon as I disembarked at Penn Station..." That line sent little shivers down my spine. I love train travel, particularly when it terminates at a yarn shop.

drive by comment, just wanted to wave hi, love the yarn.

yep, that yarn is mighty lovely!

Oooh, I can't wait to see and feel them myself! Maybe Sunday?

Google is the best search engine
