I think it’s an addiction, why else would I acquire more stash? I’m never going to knit my way though what I have already! And then there’s all those fleeces to spin…
Anyway, I fed my habit:
Kelpie, from The Yarn Yard. Laceweight cashmere. Colour: Paprika.
This is wound already and poised to make a shawl in September. The photo is a bit bright – think antique red velvet.
Also from Natalie, a skein of Gloaming:
Laceweight silk and merino. Earmarked for next year’s scarf entry to the Show, which I hope to have knitted before Christmas because…
… the long holiday knit is planned for this:
(my photo coming soon)
PlÃ¶tulopi / Unspun Icelandic – 6 plates of. In Sea Green Heather. This is going to be a huge pi shawl blanket for my bed. Purchased from Iceland, with a 20% discount on 6 plates from Nordic Store a way better deal than Schoolhouse.Â Priced in $ at 28.56Â and taking the economy postage option, enough for a seven foot diameter blanket came to a total of $38.46 – that’s about Â£23 at present. Not a bad price for an heirloom ;-)Â and certainly not a bad price for what may prove to be an entire winter’s entertainment.
For the interested: no import charges incurred.
