All up!

Isn't that just the most amazing thing?  They just got better and better at getting them up, faster and faster.  A job well done by all.  Who says there aren't miracles anymore?

Back to the much, much more mundane and inconsequential...
.  
I have been on a small scale yarn diet.  In part it is because I have a really nice stash, but also because I have no more room to store it without going outside my study. Going outside of the study to store stash is not to be tolerated.  Period. End of story.  I can only buy yarn as I knit it away. (Note to self:  Knit faster)

This doesn't mean there hasn't been some purchasing, just very little yarn.  This has been a season of very good books.  Alice Starmore's re-issued Aran Knitting, Kaffe Fassett's Pattern Library (new to me!) Rae Comptons Traditional Knitting, another goodie from a long time ago, have all been added to my library.  

But other than as needed for a project there has been very very little yarn buying. More or less.  Reeeeally.    

Till this last week.  Last week, I had to make sure to get my deeply desired Tove while I had the chance and before someone else gets to it before I do! 

As you can see, I now have a good supply of this marvelous yarn in natural and natural looking heathers.  Shawls, sweaters, all good things are wonderful in Tove.  

There have been a few other goodies creeping in too .

 Kirameki from Noro, a laceweight rayon, nylon, wool and cashmere blend.
Mini Moochi from Crystal Palace Yarns. 

Hardly any yarn buying at all...

Great choices. I've never knit with Tove but love the colours you chose.
