Of Course. It’s Yours.

Many moons ago, I got this yarn in the mail from Mountain Meadow Wool, the last installment of a 3-month Legacy Yarn Clubsubscription.

It is Mountain Meadow Wool’s Mountain Down, a 25% hand-pulled bison from Durham Ranch and 75% Mountain Merino from Camino Ranch, both in Wyoming. My family and I are definitely unnaturally into the plains and all the flora and fauna that live upon it, so this 25% bison yarn just had to be knit up into something special.

I ended up going with the original pattern I picked for the yarn, Elbert by Ysolda Teague. It was part of my “September of colorwork” and for reason after reason I’ve been super slow getting images up here with it. It’s definitely not for lack of love…

@lyndascraftroom and I have to pinch ourselves sometimes, these patterns came out of our heads! And people are actually making them, not only are they making them they’re learning something new and building they’re confidence, it’s so heartwarming it really is.

As you may know from a previous blog post, I was very lucky to visit New York City with my family back in October. And being a self confessed yarn addict, of course no trip to New York for me would be complete without a visit to a local yarn store…

I did my research before we went and I found this blog post from fellow blogger Marie of ‘Underground Crafter’ absolutely invaluable!

Visitor’s Guide to New York City Yarn Shops
