Visiting My Favorite Shop

Jeff was interested in doing a little Sunday drive to Tiverton, RI with me yesterday, so I put on my new tank and wore it out to Sakonnet Purls to look for a new project.

I picked out the Rowan Studio, Issue 15, pattern book with a number of items I like in it designed by Sarah Hatton. The yarn for my first choice pattern was not available and I didn't feel like working out a substitute with Jeff waiting patiently for me, so I opted to knit another tank and picked out some Calmer for it.

I have been wanting to try Calmer for some time, so this will be a nice way to see how the slight stretchiness works for me and then I might try it with a bigger project, with sleeves. The shop had a sample sweater in Calmer on display and it felt amazing.

There are some gorgeous color choices in this yarn, but I especially like this blue.

Happy with my purchases, I went out to find Jeff and we headed on to the reason he went to the knitting store with me in the first place...a visit to Gray's Ice Cream just up the road from Sakonnet Purls!

(The book and yarn were photographed in my herb garden. You can see the sage, etc.)

The tank looks like it fits well, and the color is so pretty.
Long live Sakonnet Purls!
