The unveiling! My purchases from yesterday's trip to Tolt Yarn & Wool ~ of course I had to have the Sheep Mug!
The Peace Fleece worsted in 'lily pad' is for a blanket size Girasole.
The Brooklyn Tweed Loft in 'hayloft' is for Stonecrop.
The cute ball of self striping yarn from Intrepid Otter in 'koi pond' is for socks (are you surprised!?).
The Studio Donegal Soft Donegal aran weight in 'oatmeal' is for Ashby.
And the Ístex Létt-Lopi is for my very first lopapeysa!! It was not on my shopping list but my husband found a pattern for 'Moon Pulls' by Diana Walla while he was browsing and thought it looked like 'me' so he twisted my arm pretty hard to go over my budget yesterday (and succeeded).
I am swooning over my new stash and have so much to keep me busy that I doubt I'll need to buy another skein of yarn all year. I can't wait to get started knitting and moving things from my 'queue' to my 'projects'!
And finally, in case you're wondering what this member of Flood's Flock will be casting on tomorrow...
I love the thought of 2000 yards of a bright happy lemony green tweedy wooly worsted weight yarn moving from my yarn bowl to a giant puddle of squishy lace in my lap keeping me warm over the winter months, so I think I'll be starting a Lily Pad Girasole to ring in the New Year!
I'm so excited to get started and knit the chilly days away with our awesome flock that has gathered together over the last few days!
Happy New Year's Eve, everyone!
