Um, there appears to be some new wool in the house. How could that have happened?
I was aiming for moderation this year and I sort of made it. Sort of.
Except for - ahem - this.
Can't sneak anything by y'all. Though in my defence, I was just picking this up. The deal was done a couple months ago. Vermont Wheel. Cherry. Iron ivy detailing on the rim. Grafton fiber on the bobbin. Good. Very good.
New collage feature. In no particular order - some fiber from Spinner's Hill (they are devilish temptreses), Maple Row, Handspun by Stephania, Grafton, Skaska and some bitchin' red cashmere laceweight from Rabbit Tree Farm.
The airport bar scarf. It would be longer but I've done it on several different needle sizes so it is this size times about 4 in another dimention. I hate it when that happens.
A very excited dog. Can you see the ears saying "throwthefrisbethrowthefrisbeethrowthefrisbee"?
I thought you could.
And though I'm trying not to dwell on the acquiring.....
This is the Buffalo Cashmere Silk from Skaska. It is even better than it looks. You are sorry you can't touch it. You really are.
Oddly, I seem to have bought a sock kit. If only I had remembered that I don't knit socks. Hmm. But when I asked them if the kit would fit my size 12s and they said a straight up no, I was so dazzled I couldn't help myself.
Makes no sense, right? Unless you know they dug up another kit's worth of yarn at a very reasonable discount so I could have socks as big as I wanted. Plus they're beer socks. How could I walk away? Go check out the Oktoberfest sock site for pictures and stuff.
And last ....but certainly not least.....my pink merino felt shoe liners from Morehouse. My feets were warm. Is good.
(There's some other stuff maybe too. So maybe the moderation didn't work out so well. Oh well. )
