Still, other than the Cascade, all the yarn I purchased this month was to finish something. Well and there was that one skein of blue laceweight. And that Japanese Stitch Dictionary. (Did I ever mention how I think that Mr. Needles is a pretty great guy?)
Oh well. No matter how careful I was, the end result is that I am getting the nicest mail. Here is the result of a couple days mail.
There on the bottom is an almost chunky looking worsted weight, Naturally Alpine. Its an OK yarn, a little coarser than I hoped, but it will be fine for outside wear sweaters and things that are not intended for against your skin wear. There are 2 colours on the pile, a dark green and a really fantastic charcoal.
To the right in the picture, is a couple of plates of Plotulopi, a deep rich green and a heathery garnet/ copper/ rust confection. I'm not sure which way these two colours will be used, but they are the additional colours I need to knit something really great with the Plotulopi I ordered from Iceland earlier this year.
Then up at the top are 3 skeins of the creamiest softest buttermilk whites of Einband you have ever seen. Desert island, here I come.
And right there, up on top, the crowning achievement, is the single ball of black I needed to finish Lilia Hyrna. Crowning achievement because I did not forget to order it.
All these lovely things are sitting here on my desk and oh, how I do love to look at them, to reach out and touch them as I knit or goof off on Ravelry. As much as I love them, I am being swamped by them. I am going to have to do a good stash tidy. No getting away from it.
I intend to have a really really good time.
