Potential

Someone once said that knitters don't buy yarn, they buy potential....
Well these two skeins of potential sat in the shop for a couple of months and didn't sell. I've seen their potential since the day I pulled them out of the dye pot, so they finally came home with me. They are potentially going to become a new cardigan design. (Yarn is Solo Cat and the colour is Steel Town).

And I finally picked up my potential Colour Affection and brought it home
In the end I went with the darker burgundy skein (though it looks quite bright here). As you can see, they are perfect match for my Twyla set. I'm thinking Colour Affection will make good airport/airplane/hotel knitting, so I'll be casting on for this before I leave for Chicago.

And if you're in need of some potential of your own, Mom updated the shop on the weekend. 
Use the code SNOW10 and you can save 10% until the end of the month.

We buy potential don't we?

I love Steel Town. I'm surprised they didn't sell quick.

I want more potential, but I don't need it. LOL

I own LOTS of potential. ;-)

I always buy without a project in mind so saying it is potential is perfect!

I can't wait to see your Color Affection. Those colors are going to be amazing together.

The Steel Town is very pretty...but gray yarn in winter? Sorry, Valerie. This time of year, I want bright. Tropical. Sunshine and beaches. Fruity drinks with umbrellas. Anything that will take my mind off the meter-high snowbank the plow left in front of my car this morning.

It's no coincidence that the current socks are Poinsettia colorway (Twisted House Cat)!

I loved Steel Town, but a lack of money meant I had to leave potential there; of course now that I'm destashing there will be no new yarn unless I need it for a specific project that I'm casting on straight away.
