Once the staff knew that I was after a couple of memorable skeins they were helpful enough to steer me in the the right direction. I picked up one skein of each of the below.

Madelinetosh One of the employee’s at Gauge Knits told me that Madelinetosh yarn is made in Texas, so not only is it from Texas (because I purchased it there), it’s made in Texas. I picked colorway 'Oak' in Tosh light dk. This colorway is a vibrant green wrapped in a fuzzy black overcoat. I have plans for Nemi (rav Link).

White Bear Fibers This yarn is by Texan dyer Doug Upchurch. I picked colorway 'Golden Buddha' in Northern Silk Sock. The silk in the this yarn just begged to be complimented by some beadwork, so I cast on Kernel (rav link). I love this yarn and the pattern is beautiful, but I'm craving more beads. So this project may get frogged in favor of something more satisfying.
