I went to my LYS, Knitty City, to find the right yarn. Knitty City, with it’s beautiful yarn selections, had the perfect yarn. I chose Cascade Yarns Heritage Solids in Gold Fusion and Cascade Yarns Heritage Wave in Solar for the other.
As for the rest of my holiday knitting, it didn’t fully work out. Fortunately, two of my gifts were timely despite the glitches. I’ll write more about my other two projects soon.
