You know it's true.....
a.k.a the inane ramblings of a mind filled with fluffy stuff...
Sooooooo, let's talk stash!
Some pure wool, from left to right :- Aran for dyeing, 4ply lambswool for dyeing, Wendy vintage 100% wool, Rowan spun 4ply, DK BFL for dyeing.
Hand-dyed loveliness, the 3 balls along the top are koolaid dyed by me aran weight BFL, there's also some nice dk and 4ply hand dyed from Ebay, and along the bottom, which really does deserve a whole picture of its own, 8oz of gorgeous, soft, shiny lace weight hand dyed merino from Cherry Tree Hill. *drool*
Fashion yarns, mostly feathery type stuff for making scarves, all bargains from The Works and Wilkinsons. It would have been rude not to!
The good stuff, a.k.a the yarn most likely to bankrupt me at any given time! We have 19 balls of Debbie Bliss cotton DK, 2 of Rowan Calmer, 7 Rowan Tapestry, Noro Kureyon, Noro Silk Garden and 6 SWTC Karaoke (earmarked for another clapotis for me!)
Some odds and sods of cotton which will probably become dishcloths, facecloths etc.
So there, that'll be why i'm a Stash Junkie then! Hubby had a look earlier and nearly had a turn, he has banned me from buying any more yarn, ever!
In other news, It was my birthday last tuesday, the big 28. In 2 years i'll be 30! That's scary. The Cherry Tree Hill merino was a birthday present from my boys, bless 'em! I also got a Nintendo DS which is a wonderful bit of kit, and a Creative Zen MP3 player which is blue and cute and wonderful. It has 30gb of memory which will take me forever to fill!
Tomorrow is my wedding anniversary, 3 years!
Stu has got man flu and is laying on the sofa moaning and groaning a lot whilst we watch the Lost Finale. Finale my ass! More unanswered questions now than ever!
I took my clapotis to stitch n bitch last week, this weekend it goes to mum. I finished off a cardigan for baby Harry (pics tomorrow probably), and now i'm using some of the Sirdar to make a jumper for Leo. Also halfway through a secret project which is fun!
Think that's everything!
|You Are 50% Evil|
Shame on me, no blogging for ten days, tsk tsk tsk!
By my reckoning i've got about 5cm of cableing left to finish before I do the top bit of garter stitch where the buttons go, then it's handles and done! Yay.
And also on the needles is...... Clapotis!!!!!
I am becoming addicted to knitting this little beauty, it's a present for my mum knitted from here, with SWTC Oasis in Napa Valley instead of the suggested yarn, mainly because Lorna's Laces is a bit beyond my budget at the moment, and it's an expensive yarn to frog when it starts going wrong, which lets face it, it's bound to!
I've also knitted a dishcloth which was fun, but I think I managed to leave at Lotties. Oops. Thomas was using it as a blanket for Po, but really, I knitted it with Debbie Bliss Cotton DK, like i'd wash dishes with it!
Stitch and Bitch was fun again this week, really relaxing there now and looking forward to it every week.
Oh, and I won a competition on MO yesterday too, some cool recycled stationary! Hoorah!
Have a good weekend!
