So today was a decent mail day. That last order I've been waiting for came and a little skein of yarn I got from someone on Ravelry. The skein is Claudia Handpainted and it's in the color John B. which I've never seen anywhere. I had to have it. I plan to use it for mitts of course. A pair I started in other yarn and need to size down...I was also surprised to see two cute little markers tied to the end of the skein. How adorable are they?Then I got the Funky Carolina order from not this past weekend, but the weekend before that. Two more merino and one bfl. I now have enough of her merino in semi-coordinating colors to spin for a feather and fan shawl. Miss FC herself inspired me. Check out hers here. It's GORGEOUS. I want one of my own. I think also that with the amount of roving I own of hers, and the fact that I lurk on her blog and flickr may have bumped me up to being a full fledged Funky Carolina stalker...
Here's what I got, they are all 4 ounces each.
Inquire Redux bfl...
Flasker merino...And Surprise merino.
I have one more thing coming that I bought when I was sick, yeah, really sick, so sick I didn't realize I clicked the add to cart button. And the buy button, and then the paypal. Nope I don't remember any of that. It's one 4 ounce roving of bfl and it should be here soon...but now I really need to stop buying stuff. It's getting to be a bad habit. Especially with working now and having less time to spin.
Here are pics of the hats in progress, my gretel, and my brother's hat which is slow going...Other than that stuff, I'm not working again until Sunday so I have a few days to myself. Hopefully to clean and knit, and most of all, DYE. I hate that there's nothing in the shop. So that's next up. Ok, well, bye for now!
