Luscious Lorna

Sounds like a call girl but its actually my newest yarn acquisition.

A knitting girlfriend, OCKKaren, has connections with a yarn shop that went out of business this spring. The owner and hand spinner of Yarn on the Farm, Joann Sadler, sold much of her inventory to a new shop owner. But what she retained, she's been offering to her friends at an amazing deal. Pretty much her cost.

Last night 8 of us knitters and our mascot, a very cool non-knitter who thinks we're fun, went over hill and dale out to the farm. Literally a farm, where Joann raises her own sheep. It was a leap back it time. She extended her amazing deal to us, since Karen knits with us in the SnB.

I scored 3 beautiful hanks of Lornas Lace from the Butterflies and Bullfrogs line, in the color Prairie. I can't wait to put it on the needles, but there is so much ahead of it. This will be my post-holiday knit. I'm really looking forward to it!

We rounded the evening out with Chicken Fried, Country Fried, Gravy drenched dinners and cream pies at Silk City Diner in Adamstown, PA. Or were we still in Stevens? Or maybe Reamstown? I don't know... all those places run together after a bit. Anyway... good, good stuff!

Now you know why I'm always talking, knitting and going on and on about Lorna's Laces!!! I love the feel and the way it knits up. I've also been sitting with my piles of "new yarn" around me on the floor. Matching them to projects etc. I had a great time as well and was glad you all came out with me to Joanna's. I will miss her shop sooooo much, I will however be going over to knit with her anytime she calls. See you at knitting tomorrow nite.

I love that yarn girl! I should have bought some myself but I think I would have been in even MORE trouble if I had :) I can't wait to see what you make with it!
