You may or may not notice that the ticker is now removed from my blog. Yeah...
It started when I was on the loopy ewe site and saw this roving that I wanted SO BAD. I just couldn't help myself, and everyone on Plurk was encouraging me! This one is called Raspberry Creme Brulee and I adore it.I couldn't bring myself to pay to ship just that though, so I got this one, Whisper:
They are both from Creatively Dyed, 8 ounces each of seawool. Can't wait to spin!
Then, since I was on a roll, I hopped over to Flawful Fibers, which I do on occasion to see if this one roving was still there. I swear it's been there forever and I loved it. So I figured, if it's lasted and no one else is gonna buy it, I should! Villa Capri (superfine merino):
Again, not able to justify shipping just one thing, I got a soysilk wool blend, since I haven't spun soysilk before. Folly:
I got all of this in the mail today. Also there was a set of stitch markers I ordered from my blog buddy Opal's new etsy shop, Opalescence. They are gorgeous!!! I love the little mermaid charm. And NOW, she's got Hello Kitty ones too...
So besides blowing my yarn/fiber diet big time, I've been trying to get back on schedule. The visit with my family still has me off and I'm having a tough time getting back to it. In the meantime I'm knitting lots of lace. Socks in between for a break.
Here is a test knit I'm doing for miss Anne over at Knitspot. It's going to be a stole, and though I'm not far, it's all I want to knit! I haven't forgotten the Swallowtail. I'm SO close to finishing. Only, I screwed up and am missing a bunch of stitches somehow, and I can't figure out what I did. So I can't knit it until I get it worked out. It's bugging the crap out of me!
On Saturday I went and got a sorely needed haircut. I love going where I do, they do massages and aroma therapy and stuff. So my neck and scalp get five star treatment. Here's a pic:
It's not my style at all, though it doesn't exactly look bad, and in fact, I've gotten compliments on it. It's just, a bit too short. I DID tell her I wanted it a little shorter than normal, so when it grows out it will still look good. It's not the overall length, but the length of my bangs. I don't like the top layer that short, but it's not even that they are TOO short. Just shorter than I'm comfortable with. So, until it grows in a bit, I'm stuck with it.
So, now I'm off to find my sweater, and sit on the couch with my knitting and catch up on the last two big brother's I've missed that are on the dvr. :)
