Though the Knitters Frolic is almost a month gone I’ve finally had a chance to post about the goodies I bought! It’s so delicious looking that I can’t bear to keep it all in the stash; it’s all on display on my desk at the moment =o)
How beautiful is this? 3 skeins of Dye-Version bamboo in the colourway ‘Rustico’ – enough for a shawl sized Clapotis (which is on the needles now, but work is so crazy I’m moving at a snails pace with it, grrr…)
And then there’s this. At last I have treated myself to a skein of Tanis Fiber Arts‘ Silver label Mulberry Silk in the colourway ‘Teal’. So beautiful it can only go to someone really special so I will be knitting the Citizen shawl for a certain somebody.
I couldn’t resist this colourway, so I added 2 more skeins of the Teal in Purple Label Cashmere for me. This will be going into the Sugared Violets Shawl. I think it’ll be a perfect match.
I also couldn’t resist swinging by the Viola booth – Emily makes stunning colourways in a truly remarkable yarn. This beauty is called Radioactive in her Merino Sock weight. It’s destiny is uncertain… perhaps I’ll actually try knitting my first pair of socks.
Mmmm… Fleece Artist. That’s 800 metres of gorgeous colour. I have absolutely no idea what I’m going to do with it. I just wanted it ;)
