But I digress.
I loved knitting my Shawl That Jazz so much that I had my eye out for yarn to knit that pattern again. On Saturday, I saw an amazing blue-black yarn in Brooks Farm Solana that quickly became a front-runner. But I didn’t buy immediately. And when I went back, it was gone!
This precipitated my first-ever foray into the Tess tent, and I came away empty-handed and not in any hurry to go back. Which took me back to Brooks Farm. Where I found this.
Meet three skeins of Brooks Farm Trio. Each skein is 420 yards of 70% wool, 20% alpaca and 10% silk.
It’s a lighter weight yarn than the Solana and the yardage per skein is higher, so this turned out to be a cheaper second Shawl That Jazz than if I had scored with the Solana, which was my original plan.
It’s the one yarn I bought in Maryland with a specific purpose. I have no idea when I’ll cast on, but this will become a Shawl That Jazz before too long. I’m looking forward to it!
