My birthday is coming up and it’s that time of year when I get to buy something extravagant wool wise. I make myself stop if I start getting too practical. Birthdays should be for something special!
My pattern is Jeanie from knitty. I’ve decided it has to be a bit smaller…perhaps shorter and maybe one repeat narrower? I have to take a good look at the pattern to see. There must be a logical way to make it smaller 🙂 The reason being that I found a beautiful yarn which will leave me somewhat short….
It’s Araucania Ranco Multi ‘Peacock’ and I stopped the madness at 3 skeins.
I bought from The Loopy Ewe – a new online shop for me! I’m always excited about ordering yarn 🙂 Love, love the selection at that shop too…and flat rate shipping is always a bonus!
In the spirit of crazy Birthday Spending and because I want to learn how to use my drop spindle and I have dreams of making beautiful wool….
I bought two kinds of roving! One is bfl in ‘callow lily’ and one is superwash merino in ‘dusty cornflower’. Both look beautiful on screen. I can’t wait to see them in person! Oooh and touch them too 🙂 May they spin for me!
Check it out…Not the colour I bought but SO pretty!
Now the fun of waiting for my excellent package in the mail!
