I have some lovely Lorna's Laces ( I love you Lorna!!!!!); 2 skeins each in two separate colourways. I bought 3 skeins of Trekking XXL (I was very excited to buy my first Trekking - it is amazing!) and 2 skeins of Koigu - choosing what Koigu to buy was really hard there were so many colours. Seriously. Megan has an amazing collection of yarns in great colours.
So that was Wednesday. On Thursday I got three parcels in the mail. I was so excited about finally receiving my Sundara Yarns I had to control myself opening up the packages. OH MY GOD! The yarns are gorgeous; the colourways absolutely scrumptious. Sundara has done herself proud.
These are the sock yarns. From left to right; Black Lagoon, Cirque, #026 and #037. My picture doesn't really do the colours justice; the blue is far more subtle and the green on the right is not so bright. The colours are really rich and it is neat that she dyes in small batches so each batch will be just that bit different from the one before it.
I also got some other yarn from Sundara. After ordering the Sock Yarn I had to go back to her sight and of course there was a pile of other yarn I really wanted - had to hold back but did end up with 6 other skeins. On the left is Mossy, a Worsted Merino. It is really lovely. Muted greens. Not sure what I am going to make with these.
On the right is Stormy, an Aran Silky Merino. I love it sooooo much! The colours are fantastic and the texture is oh so nice!
The photo does not do it justice; it is much more muted. I have no clue what I am going to do with it; I have about 600 yards of it and whatever is going to be knit with it will have to be super special.
After drooling and moaning over these beauties I did manage to open my other parcel. From Amazon I got two books, stitch 'N bitch Nation, Fiona Ellis' inspired cable knits and YIPPEE!! YIPPEE! the first season of Grey's Anatomy. I love Grey's Anatomy, absolutely love it! It is a little embarassing because I have to make sure there are no distractions so I can watch the show in total peace (which of course never freaking happens!) - but now I have all the episodes of the first year and I can watch them as many times as I want, over and over again. Yea!!!! (I know it's possible that I may need to get more of a life!)
Knit, Knit, Knit...I am jonesin with my wool. Booyah!
