Wired for Fibre

Katie is my favorite indie dyer and sells my Luxury Yarn at Wired for Fibre . So when I got some tax back, I decided I'd better honor my recent Stash Pledge (lol) of Quality over Quantity. So, before I could spend up on barrels of bargains, I headed to WFF and filled up my trolley with very nice stuff.




Here they all are again, L to R...


This one is Tidal, which I used once before, I think, on Zachary's little kimono sweater. He was wearing it today, but he's almost grown out of it, little chubber. I got just a bit of "Lauren", which is 10-12ply/ heavy worsted, because it was beautiful to knit up my Paper Moon hat with.

Haystacks. The photos made it seem mainly green and yellow, and I bought it for it's Springish colors (it's very wet and yukky-grey here lately). But there are a lot more colors in there, and they're all mixed so well... sigh. I'm glad I got two.


This one is such a color-mix. No plans for it yet, but I love it. It's mostly rusty reds, but it's also got some grey-blue and some gold... hmmm.
Elizabeth is a fingering-weight merino. In spite of my hatred for all the grey clouds, I love the grey color range, so I bought some 4ply. It's not the cashmered-up one, but I'm still thinking a shawl or lace scarf...
Also thought I'd try some 100% silk in a semisolid gray. What shall I do with 230m of silver silk? Hmmm... :D
Fate would have to be my favorite colorway from WFF. It's just a dark green semisolid, but I love it a lot. This one's an 8ply, because I already have one, and decided I needed another (to have enough to make anything). I'm thinking of mixing it up with another skein I have of... hmmm... elusiyan, I think, and making Jasmine something.
.
And now I have to knit knit knit, or my stash-weight is going up this month. Can I knit half a kilo in a week? :D hehehehhe.

I am a firm believer in quality over quantity. Which probably explains why I'm broke all the time (but I've got a REALLY nice stash). Love the silk, can't wait to see what you knit up with it!
