Yarn Crawl Adventures

Having been busy with a Yarn Crawl and a road trip to visit out of state family, I have had no time to share my Yarn Crawl experience.
Although there were 13 shops participating in the Crawl, we were only able to visit 5 shops. One of the 5 was our home shop.

My three wooly friends and I set out early Thursday morning to visit our first shop--which for us was the farthest.  We packed snacks and water to sustain us.  Even though I made a resolution this year to limit my yarn purchases, I knew I would purchase some lovely wooliness for specific projects.
The grey Sueno is for Wee Baby Blocks.  We have a new grandbaby coming in January and there was a request for a grey blanket.  At the top right are three skeins to make Big Fat Stratus.  There is some roving on the left.  I am going to make thrummed mittens.  I will add up the yardage for my stash report on Sunday.

On the Needles Friday

I am definitely in the home stretch with my Great American Aran Afghan.  Block 22 is done.

And I hope to finish the pieces for block 23 tonight.  This square has a mini Aran sweater stitched onto a background block.
I am off to Judy's to see what others are working on.
