New Nerd Girls Random Fandom..”What, Do You Think Poisoned Apples Grow on Trees?” from Enchanted….I wasn’t in love with it when I opened it, but I’ve realized it looks like the Black Watch plaid colors and would make excellent socks….so socks it is!
I was very restrained at The Connecticut Sheep and Wool, as I really do have a lot of yarn….so what did I purchase?
Blackbird by Ball and Skein on Weatherfield which is 100% Merino. I realize now I also have this color on Elise which is a silk/merino mix.
Some Dirty Water Dyeworks Potluck. She usually has a crate out with 1-offs and I picked this one up…It’s Merino and bamboo.
Pure alpaca from a favorite farm, Hunter Hill Alpacas. Their farm is in my town and I’ve visited a couple of times…This pretty green and purple was made with fiber from Fiber Optic and Goldy…
Also from Dirty Water Dyeworks….This is 100% BFL and I’m going to pair it
Miss Babs’ Yummy 2 ply in Ice Core Sample for the Wholehearted Shawl. I couldn’t decide if I wanted a big contrast or not…but as I bought the Three Irish Girls West End Scarf with the contrasting yarn at Vogue Live, I decided to go with more complimentary colors….
One of those will be my dissertation next round….since I never got very far on my Stephen West Creekbed, we’ll see how this goes!
