I went to Romni Wool store yesterday, after returning my unwanted yarn, I’ve the credit note and bought some new yarn and patterns again. (what a happy day!)


The pattern book Filati was actually inspired by Pax (knew her from Flickr) , she did a great job on the Bolero Gala, I just love this pattern a lot. So, I can’t wait to buy this pattern book and yarn.


The yarn is Lana Grossa Gala (it’s not cheap though, $12.95 each!):
48% Silk, 24% Rayon, 17% Linen, 11% polyamide.
95m, 50g.

I also bought Rowan Damask for another Rowan project:  Rowan Magazine#41 – Bonita


I actually like the red tone more than the blue, so, I bought the red ones.
The texture of this yarn is very special: 57% Viscose, 22% linen, 21% acrylic, it’s just perfect for spring and summer wear.

I was in Romni last night too!! 5:30 or so for an hour or two. We almost crossed paths! I just keep browsing even though I found what I was looking for right away 🙂
I was checking out Damask too. I like the red you got.
But I didn’t walk out with any yarn since I got so much recently. Just got the Denise cord I needed and called it a day.

That’s cool, May. we almost see each other in the store. 🙂
However, I seldom go to downtown during that period of time, as I am usually teaching piano during that time slot. 🙂
You like the Damask too? It’s a very nice yarn! I love it.
Is Denise Cord good??
I didn’t have any Denise needles , I am currently using Bamboo needles and some Addi turbo ones.

I can’t wait to see the finished project too.
Right now, I almost got the front half way done.
It’s a very beautiful yarn, I am falling in love with it.

I like my Denise set but don’t love it 100%. I think if I was to start from scratch, I would order the knitpicks options. My problem with the denise set is that the cord is bigger than the smallest size needle and since I’m a tight knitter, it makes the smallest sizes not usable. I love Addis too. But too expensive for a complete set for me. I just get them for the most useful sizes for me. For all the sizes I don’t use often, the denise set is great for that. No need to keep buying new needles and I still get to knit most projects I want to tackle.
