Spring yarn shopping

Yesterday it was a beautiful sunny day and so I went downtown for a walk.

Walking in Florence is like walking in an open-air musem: it is just wonderful.

The truth is that I did not plan to buy yarn: but those places where they sell yarn were nearby and I could not resist to see the new spring yarns!  😉

Here is what I bought: some bright skeins of pure Egyptian cotton and a couple of skeins in natural color.

As soon as I arrived at home I knitted a swatch in stockinette stitch just to test the lightness of this cotton and I was satisfied.

In conclusion, sometimes happiness can be reached so easily: just take sunshine and add some new yarn skeins! And the planning of new exciting knitting projects, of course. But attention: spring shopping can cause yarn addiction!

What puts you in a good mood?
