I spent a week in D.C. for work a few weeks ago. I made sure to find a local yarn shop to visit one evening, which resulted in this WIP (more on this later).
The LYS I chose to visit was a cozy little loft located North of Dupot Circle, called Looped Yarn Works. If it was located back home in Kansas City, I’d love to take my crocheting and some coffee, and hang out on their couch stitching on a quiet afternoon.
I picked up this cute little lapel pin…
…and this AMAZING yarn! It is a Heavy Fingering Weight yarn called, get this, Melted Suri. It is 65% Baby Suri Alpaca, 25% SW Merino, and 10% Silk. It is absolutely heavenly. You just want to snuggle it right up to your cheek. The hand-painted colorway is called Beach Shells.
So back to my WIP… I decide on a cowl for this super soft yarn, and went with the Arcade Stitch. I worked it up in the round, which went very well with this yarn – you cannot tell where the joins are at all with its web-like texture. I will finish it up and get a pattern ready for testing!
I’ll leave you today with this fun crocheting picture, which is in the stairwell on the way up to Looped Yarn Works’s shop. Have a great week!
