Sunday Stash No. 25

My favorite Houston yarn shop closed last year, so I’ve been trying to find a replacement, but the only other shops are in the suburbs.  I had a little time this past weekend, so I took a little trip west of town to Yarntopia.

While the shop was quite small, it was packed full of familiar yarns, such as Malabrigo and Manos del Uruguay.

One of the best parts of going to your LYS is getting to feel the yarn and discovering something new.  For that reason, I picked out two skeins of Sweet Georgia Trinity Worsted.  I had heard the name floating around, but hadn’t yet seen or purchased any.

This particular yarn is a blend of merino, cashmere and silk, so it’s basically irresistible once it’s in your hands.  And the color is absolutely amazing in person, a lovely mix of blues and greens.

The photos don’t do the color justice!  Now I’m on the hunt for just the right project for this special yarn.

Stashed here.
