And now onto today's shopping...
I bought a fluoro yellow ball of yukky mostly-acrylic because Nathan wanted a fluoro yellow hat. It wasn't fluoro enough for him, I think, but it will do. I won't hurt your eyes by posting a pic, though. Instead...
Moda Vera Picchio. 70% merino, 30% silk.
It's so pretty, I skeined it for photography, but I couldn't get all the colors to photograph properly. Anyway, the brownish one is "bark" and the greenish one is "Fusion". It's so soft! It's a lot like Noro silk garden, except the long color changes are more muted, the yarn is more even, and it's Not At All scratchy. Beautiful! I wanted to get 4 to make a "noro striped scarf" but I didn't really have $32.
Then a friend came over and bought our "Paddock Bong" as Byron calls it. It's the first car I ever bought, but it's a 1984 Mitsubishi that has long been Nathan's paddock bomb. Now it can only be jump-started, and it's not really good for anything but scrap. But Glenn's bought it, and now I have more yarn money for Bendigo!
(Anyone else out there traded a car for yarn? lol)
Now it's my hubby's turn to have time off. He was moving my garden from 100m down the yard to just outside the door, but he found a wasps nest under one of the sleepers, so he left it alone. Now he's out in the shed making me up a sock blocker, bless his blokey heart. hehe.
