Ok so hubby ran to the post office today for me, so I didn't have to. This is what he brought back. I'm so excited about all of it!
First up was an impulse buy from Fat Cat Knits. I really didn't mean to buy any more roving but I saw this and had to get it. It's 4.3 ounces of merino tencel in the color Seaweed. Her merino tencel is gorgeous and soft! I will be probably impulse buying more of it in the future. ;) Also the pic is a little dark, the colors are just a tad brighter than this.Next up are the rovings I bought last Saturday from Funky Carolina when she did her shop update. She did one today as well, and it was hard to not buy anything!
4 ounces of superfine merino that is SO soft. Softest merino that I've ever touched I think. It's like malabrigo soft. The name is Fern Gully. That alone made me want it lol. Love that movie.
4 ounces of superfine merino in Pirate:
4 ounces of regular merino in Little More:Lastly there is 4 ounces of superwash merino in Runs Deep. It's really soft superwash!
I seriously can't wait to spin all this. I am going to have a really hard time deciding what roving to spin after I finish the pink merino and the dusty melons merino silk. I have to say as well that her rovings smell really really good. Seriously. I wonder what she uses...I may have to ask her.
I'm still waiting on the roving that I bought from The Sweet Sheep. They are in Canada so shipping takes a little longer. I am not sure when they shipped it but I should get it next week. After that I will not be buying much roving for a while. Or at least I'm going to TRY not to. I'm going to save for a new wheel. And probably sell my current one.
On the knitting front, I didn't get much done yesterday. I brought knitting because we thought things would be slow, but girls and purses...yeah. It was fun though and I will probably be helping out more, maybe next weekend.
