Ok, what have I got for you this week? Hmmm... eventful week. Having problems with blogger so have to keep it short, sweet and photo-heavy.
I've been a busy girl stocking up the shop before I go on holiday next week .
This week's yummy yarns are, in no particular order:
Lime Violets (sold)
Someone who shall remain nameless had her nifty fingers on tonight!
(There's a story behind this name)
And last but not least
From time to time in this dyeing game you get a little happy accident, and Waterlilies is one of them. Was aiming for turquoise, magenta and chocolate brown. Hmmm. Not quite. But I like it.
Here we have a custom order for a fab customer in Delaware - 5 skeins of Golden Plum.
And another order before it got wrapped in tissue:
Phew! This lot has taken it's toll on my good looks:
Whoa! You're not kidding.
(This snooty camel is really my Ravelry avatar)
For the first time in weeks, I got something started on my needles.
This is the Watermelon yarn from Freshisle Fibers which knits beautifully. I've done a bit more since this photo and started turning the heel and got myself into a bit of difficulty by starting with a purl row instead of a knit by the time I'd divided the stitches (how?) but will bore on and see what happens. It looks good so far and I love it when I get to knit the black seedy bits.
And finally, thanks to the lovely Piglottie for a glowing message on her blog and for the mention on the Ravelry forums. My head is so big it's lolling off my shoulders:)
