Stash Sunday

DSC02607 (2)
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!
