Yarn-Foo


I was on business travel to San Antonio last week and I was able to hook-up with a friend who knits. She took me to a fabulous yarn shop. I think she has gotten me hooked on knitting. We picked up some large needles, some small needles and some wonderful yarn. The blue is a fat yarn requiring size 10.5 needles. I'm hoping I can learn to do a monmouth cap with that yarn but I need to get some double-pointed needles first.
The red is a nice weight for socks, but I'm hoping to knit a miser's purse with it. My friend copied out some directions for me. Obviously I need to learn to knit in the round first.
What fun trip!
