Socks and Shrugs...
I picked up the yarn for the shrug on the cover of the latest Knit It magazine. It took a while for me to find a store with enough stock in the right color (the one pictured). I got lucky last weekend - I was in Michael's just as they were restocking the shelves with new deliveries. I think I took their entire supply - I didn'tsee any more bags besides what I took. Seems strange that they would order so little - especially when a pretty design is featured on the cover of a popular knitting magazine. I know the LYS I go to most often - Goldman's Yarns - will specifically order in extra yarn for designs they expect to be popular. (I guess that's the difference between a LYS and a chain that caters to a variety of interests.)
I have also begun a pair of socks using some of the Knitpicks yarn I purchased a while back. - Sock Garden in Hydrangea. I loved the colors of this yarn!
