Among the yarns that I have purchased in the last 6 months, are the above from Hand Maiden and Fleece Artist. I'm drawn to soft, and colourful, in case you didn't know. I have only 1 or two skeins of each, so my imagination will have to get to work if I'm to use them. I have already knit a mobius shoulder wrap for Belinda, a (won't say what because she doesn't have it yet) for Emily, and am usually not drawn to smaller projects, so any ideas would be appreciated.
Socks are always a great 'I don't know what to do next' project. They get me over the hump, so to speak. After knitting a couple of pair, I usually know what's next on the project agenda. These skeins from Blue Moon are fabulous. Colour thing again. And VERY SOFT.
Mmmmmmmmm. More sock yarn. From Schaefer, called Anne as I'm sure you know.
Blue Heron's Rayon Metallic. This is also very soft, but I'll save it for a special project. The glitter is a bit much for me at the moment, probably because of the wedding outfit that I made last year. Enough glitter for a lifetime.
I spelled this wrong. It's Misti Alpaca, and I bought it over the internet at Make One Yarn Studio. A terrific place - if you are ever in Calgary, Alberta, you have to go. So many gorgeous yarns. Such friendly people. If you cannot get there, they are great over the phone, or the internet. I thought I'd do something cabled - must have been inspired by the cover of Vogue Knitting. But it's the wrong time of year, so it will have to wait until the late summer.
Last is a single skein of Lorna's Lace's, Lion & Lamb. I used the balance for a bag, and this is left over. Too late to return it - the story of my life. So it sits in it's glory surrounded by these other yarns. I guess it's happy. I hope so.
