And I have to report that I did some yarn shopping on Ebay over the weekend. Several years ago I knit some flip-top mittens for my mother out of Trekking XXL that I purchased at a LYS. It's the most beautiful yarn that I've ever knit with. The color changes every couple of stitches. Fortunately, I only used a little over half of the skein. So, I have the balance of it to pet on a regular basis. I've been looking for more Trekking to purchase. I didn't want the self-striping type, just the varigated kind. I found a seller in England that had some! So, I picked up a skein in a variety of greens and a skein that's ombre. Can't wait for it to arrive! So, I leave you with my partial skein of Trekking ---I just have to note what a terrible tragedy at Virginia Tech this morning. I just can't believe it. I can tell you as someone who spent a significant period of my life living on a college campus much like Virgina Tech that to have an incident like this happen is absolutely shocking.
