I woke up this morning to find a gift in my email inbox from Emma & Jay - a gift certificate to Yarn Market! They sell absolutely scrummy yarns from scads of famous designers, and I go there regularly to drool. Today, I got to go there and shop! I bought 2 skeins of Tofutsies yarn (a blend of soysilk left over from the tofu making process, chitan, made from shrimp & crabshells, as well as cotton and wool) and a Berrocco pattern book I'd been coveting.
It's called"Salem". The booklet has a good mix of knit and crochet designs, and household patterns as well as clothing patterns.
