Got home today and promptly fell asleep for an hour and a half. i only meant to be down for 20 minutes... and of course now i've planned as much as i can tonight and i'm in that false awake-ness that comes after a nap.
but this benefits those of you in need of some fibre porn to get you through your week because i can think of nothing better to soak up my time with and try to send myself to sleep.
So the haul! i will not tell you prices, its too depressing, though everything was a good deal. promise ;)
Here i have a little white crossbreed tops - been very keen to dye my own since buying the twisted sister sock workbook - some fabulous ideas in that one.
And a little... something. dont know what sheep was responsible, but its 2 x 100g.
And some 'spearmint' merino which may be plyed with the above. seriously, this stuff is so soft i want to weep. I AM NOT WORTHY!
And some rasberry merino. have been using this to ply with the pinky yarn (hereby titled 'Tickled Pink') and it is a DREAM to spin, so soft, so light, so fine... drooooollllAnd of course the pink/white concoction i showed you the other day. This is my third and last packet of the same, i have two skeins of Tickled Pink (200 metres all up) and should get another two from whats left over. Some tops dyed as Tropical sunset (seriously.. was i supposed to resist? i thought not).
Some grey polwarth with 10% silk Some silk handkerchiefs in Sarsparilla
A little laceweight just to prove i cant hide from the yarn (though i did see and resist the ladybird opal yarn... and i'm regretting it right now. but it was very strong for me to leave without sock yarn!) and handspun, hand dyed for $6.25 for 50g..! seriously people!!!The Vera-esque socks which i tried to show you on sunday. Finished on saturday. Excuse messy bedroom and dodgy photo, just swung around on my computer chair and rolled up my pj pants ;) Stealth socks for my sherpa. anyone with a baby to knit for try the rainbow variegated merino bambino - yummmm!! its fun! and of course... good for socks too ;) Wish me luck tomorrow, two classes >.<
