Acquisitions: BT Shelter

I just received three skeins of Brooklyn Tweed's Shelter in the mail. I've never wanted to marry yarn before, but this...this...It's a good thing that yarn can't propose because I'd be hard-pressed not to say "yes, yes, YES."

Maybe I'm a bit caught up in the romance of meeting a new handsome yarn -- regardless, Shelter is classic and perfect and delicious. The look, the feel, the smell of this yarn are showstoppers all. Can't wait to work with this stuff.

And now I'm off to follow the Lost River. Details, soon.

I picked up two skeins over the weekend. It really is So. Lofty. I had read it was light and airy, but didn't understand how much so until I held some!

I just got my 4 skeins of Shelter in the mail...I want to use them for something, but it's got to be something good. Until then, they are literally perched on the arm of my knitting chair so that I can admire them daily!
