Rule #1. Don't ever go to a yarn store unless you plan on buying something.

Today I was in the neighborhood of little yarn shop that carries many of the smaller label artisans. I was perfectly happy walking around, petting all the yarn, making notes of ones that I would like to look up at a future time. I had no plans on buying anything. None. Wasn't going to happen.

Then, as I made my toward the exit, close to safely escaping with all my money still in my wallet, I spotted it. A basket full of Claudia Hand Painted Yarns in Chunky, one of my absolute favorite yarns. I don't see it in stores often, and it was on the sale rack for 25% off. How could I resist?  The only thing left to do is choose between the deep purple or aqua blue colors.

As I have a lot of aqua already, I went with the deep purple (which has become a theme color for me).

The picture doesn't do justice to this stunning color. The colorway is called Last Night's Wine, and I wonder if that was the inspiration or what she actually used as a dye color!

I limited myself to just the one skein, which I will happily use for a cowl or hat. I prefer smaller projects anyway.
