So here are my purchases for the last little while. I know, I have left a few out that I already used up.
Top of the picture you see 1 skein Lambs Pride bulky in Blue Magic from Knit & Pearl, to be used for a Meathead hat for my brother in law (he was jealous when the kids all got them for christmas & he didn’t).
1 1lb cone of Lambs Pride Bulky in Roasted Coffee from Oregon Trail Yarn & Books on Ebay, to be used for another deep cowl neck sweater from Vogue Fall ’06 that I made using a boucle yarn in a previous post.
1 1lb cone of Lambs Pride worsted in Medieval Red also from Oregon Trail, it does not have a designated project yet but soon I promise.
2 cones of Aunt Lydias denim cotton, one is a marl linen, the other is chambray.
The dark orange set of balls in front left are cashmere from Colourmart, it’s laceweight that I just wound 3 strands together to make a worsted weight.
The bright yellow/green, color 9912, ball is Cascade Yarns Bulky Leisure HD.
Behind that there is a dark green ball of Debbie Bliss Cotton Cashmere from Knit & Pearl, I have 2 more balls of it in a light blue somewhere. Somehow it didn’t get inventoried, I am wondering if I offloaded it onto someone else, Marieke maybe? Anyhow, I am going to use this one to make myself an Odessa hat with pretty beads that have yet to be purchased.
Directly in front of that is a Pea green Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran from Knit & Pearl to add to my stash that will eventually become a striped or maybe fair isle sweater.
To the right of that are 2 balls of Crystal Palace Yarns Bamboozle from Craft Essentials worsted weight bamboo blend yarn for socks in colorway Fall Herbs.
Behind those balls are 2 balls of Crystal Palace Yarns Panda Cotton from Craft Essentials fingering weight, it is also a bamboo/cotton blend for socks in colorway Cinnamon.
And lastly on the right are 3 balls of Little Lehigh, cotton/acrylic Dk in colors It’s a Boy (blue), Sleepy Head (lavendar) and Play time (green). I thought the names were pretty cute and they are huge balls of yarn! Over 240 yards for $6 at Knit & Pearl. Great buy for all the baby stuff that is going around lately.
Not in the picture but on the way are a few cones of Peaches N Creme for bathmats, random kitchen stuff, washcloths, ballband washrags, etcetc.
Also coming are 2 balls of hand dyed superwash sock yarn coming from Over the Rainbow Yarns on Ebay. Leaflitter & Freaky Purple. I know, I don’t need anymore mileage in the sock yarn department. I haven’t actually finished a pair of socks in about a month. But I do have 2 sock classes I am teaching plus my dad’s bday coming up so that is at least 3 pair. Tada!!
And my mom’s Mother’s Day present is on it’s way. I will have to tell her & dad not to read so I can post about it. It’s a good one!
Look at the Horse Hat! It’s a kit from Bea Ellis Knitwear. I chose burgundy & a very pale silver blue color. I can’t wait to get it! How perfect for her long, freezing horse rides. They are doing a wagon train in a couple of months (right after mother’s day I think) so it will be perfect timing for those cool nights in the high desert and mountains.
That is what I have coming & have acquired. Jealous? Probably not but I am excited about it all. Can you tell there is a little more money coming in recently? I am done now. I shall knit, knit, knit. That is if I can get my butt off this computer.
