Tried to post this Friday, but Blogger was being Buggy.
I came to Japan with only two suitcases, and very little room for yarn. All I brought was the skein of LionBrand Homespun that I was making into a scarf for my sister, intending to knit on the plane. The scarf did not get finished until January or February, and I didn't buy new yarn till I found a local yarn store having a big spring sale in March.
3 balls Filatura di Crosa Mushino
2 balls Filatura di Crosa Dali
4 balls Filatura di Crosa Sympatico (various colors)
2 hanks Noro Kochoran
4 balls Greeting 100% wool
It's not all pictured there...
The Noro became a hat and a pair of mittens (my first mittens ever!) 50% wool, 20% silk, 30% angora
The Japanese wool became Boyfriend Beanies (one for the bf, one for another friend) both pictured on me. The black has 5 rows of k2p2 ribbing at the bottom, but you can't see it.
I'm still brainstorming about what I want to do with the Sympatico, it's lovely stuff, maybe some more mittens . The Mushio and the Dali are becoming a verticaly striped scarf.
