First, our trip to Imagiknit in San Francisco brought 2 skeins of Manos. My first Manos I've ever bought. I'm excited to try it. I'm thinking some mittens and a hat. I'm resisting the My So Called Scarf, since I've already knit it 3 times, and I'm pretty sick of it.
On to the things from Twisted....
First is a skein of Zen String. This colorway reminds me of a tropical aquarium.
The next is Zen String in Neptune. No picture does this yarn justice.
Next is grass colored Zen String. This one is sport weight, and I can't wait to try it out.
Surprisingly, I'd never used Austerman Step before, so when I saw it I thought I should give it a try. It wasn't until I picked up the first ball that I realized how soft this yarn is! I had to get two! It's even softer than the other yarns.
Of course you've already seen the Twisted souvenirs from round 1, so you know I'm not hurtin' for yarn right now. Apparently I quite like Zen String. Who knew!
