WIP Wednesday - Wingspan and YARN! :D

Still working on the wingspan. I took a bit of a break to finish my test-knit and the embroidery (photos to come on Friday), so I've only added one more "wing" since the last photo. I think it's coming along nicely though.


My favourite yarn-shop is moving (to a better and larger location, so it's all good :D ) and used the occasion to have a HUGE sale with 50% of pretty much everything. I'd discovered some serious deficits in my stash so went there Friday and again yesterday to remedy that...

That pile consists of:
2 skeins Katia Irina
4 skeins Katia Samoa
7 skeins Grignasco Extrafine
10 skeins Madil Yarns Bravo Sport
3 skeins Grignasco Soft Kid

I think I may have gone slightly overboard... but I prefer to think of it as that I saved $150 ;)

    1. It really is. It's my second wingspan, and I'm enjoying it as much as the first time.

    1. Ha! Good point :) I don't think they're having one of those... which is probably just as well ;)

  7. WHOA! 50% off! That's amazing. It seems like the store moving is a Win/Win situation for everyone involved.

    1. My thoughts exactly! So yeah, I went a little wild, but it was SO worth it!

  8. I have heard of these mythical 50% off sales but I didn't think they were real. How lucky of you to find one and snag all that awesome yarn.

    1. I'd never seen them before IRL before either, so I was thrilled to get the chance to drop by :D

  9. Looks great. I went twice to take advantage of the sale;-) Bought that same Grignasco Extrafine yarn...so soft. Do you have any ideas on what you will use it for? /Ingrid

    1. Isn't it? I just couldn't help myself! :D

      There's a spring mystery KAL starting mid March which calls for lace-weight yarn. I've never done a mystery KAL before, so I thought that could be fun.

      Other than that I was thinking of some lace scarves and perhaps a lace camisole... but no, I haven't made up my mind 100% yet.

      How about you?
