Sittin' Here Knittin' - Old one

Ramblings about Knitting and other important stuff

Monday, June 20, 2005


This lovely is cotton and angora (yum) that may end up a OSW. The "shop" with this sold mostly roving that looked to me like cotton candy because of how they packaged it. They had a small section of finished yarn on the back wall. What a lucky find. There is nearly 400 yards in there.

This sport weight wool in a pretty mauve is destined to become a cardigan - maybe

This is a colorway I fell in love with (needs a better name than "103"). It's about 1200 yards of a Rayon and Flax blend. I have NO idea what I'm going to make with it but I like it a lot.

And the piece de resistance - 100% Kid Mohair from Brooks Farms that will most likely become the Diamond Sweater I had started out of cotton then changed my mind about.

And to top off the festival properly.

(Is is sad the I already can't wait for next year?)

you're a little tricksy! I didn't see you bought THREE skeins of the kid mohair from BFY! THREE. I'm drooling. The interlacements would make a nice form fitting sweater for you, I bet (it's 1200 yards and you're quite tiny).

Love your know you are being subtle about it, but I think you like pink just as much as we do:) So, we've put off the date for starting Rogue...what's the new date? I'm expecting my yarn this week and I know that it will be tempting to wind it down and "swatch"!

Love the button (and the yarn). I bought some BFY at MDS&W, now I just have to decide what to make with it...right now it's aging nicely in the stash. Glad you had fun!

You've got great taste in yarn! I'm looking forward to see what you make with your new purchases.
