A New Shop

We got a new yarn shop just down the street, so I had to stop by. It has a catchy name, Flying Pig Yarn Shop. If you get the opportunity to stop by, do so and say hello to Debbie the owner. Since I was there, I had wanted to purchase some more yarn. My temptation on this stop was Frog Tree Meriboo, which is a merino wool bamboo blend. It is super soft and comfy feeling. I actually purchased it with a pattern in mind, the Knit Night Hat by Judy Maroles, that I found on Ravelry a couple of weeks ago. I actually swatched for this pattern. I wanted a hat that was slightly loose fitting so it wouldn't squish my hair as much as some of my other hats. It was relaxing to pick up the needles again after a long hiatus. I think it is turning out pretty good.

After I finish blocking my hat, I am going to attempt to finish up some of my UFOs that have been languishing in the totes in my shelf. I can do this if I stay focused, I know I can.
