While I’ve been without the ‘net, I should’ve been knitting up what’s in my stash. Supposedly. Now if you look at my Ravelry list, you can see that I’m not short on stash that needs to be used up, in fact, I’m never going to be able to use all of that up in a lifetime.
Unfortunately, my trigger happy fingers were busy purchasing MORE yarn rather than knitting up what I already have. Bad girl. This was done online as well as at the yarn stores that I have found in the village. And Ollie is well aware of my activities as it was done from his laptop, in the evenings, when he was feeling guilty about our lack of ‘Net access. 😀
Here are some of the purchases:
Sock wool from the local market on Friday mornings.. the guy is German, but spoke some Hindi! It was quite cool 🙂
This is some Cashmere/Silk blend cones from ColourMart
Some Cascade Ecological Wool for a Hemlock Ring
Regia 4 ply in some very pretty pink shades (for Christmas knitting, I think)
and lastly (in terms of yarn) is the Regia Silk, which I’m looking forward to knitting with!
As the Eco Wool was from Webs I decided I should make the trip for it worthwhile and ordered the following:
Louet Gems drop spindle and some roving. Now I just need to learn what I’m supposed to do with it.
