Also used the scraps (a few yards I kept from each of the skeins) to make some gloves
in time to wear to the Australian Sheep and Wool Show in Bendigo.
And now, on to Bendi stash...
My goal this year was to get some different yarns to spin, including a fleece. And so, I got some
|Blue Faced Leicester/ silk 50/50|
|Llama and silk|
|Merino/Suri alpaca/ silk|
|Steamer Trunk, Silver fox, Winter Wheat|
And these sock yarn skeins just jumped into my bag, I don't know how :)
|Stranded in Oz "Goddess of the Field", but it makes me think of Van Gogh's "Sunflowers".|
|Stranded in Oz "Friar Tuck Green". Sparkly.|
|Moseley Park, "Dion", also very sparkly. hehe.|
I also got a nice fleece from Moseley Park. I couldn't decide what kind of fleece to get, and was tossing up between Finn, Corriedale and English Leicester. Then I found this one
Now I have a new plan for a NEWT next month (not that I'm even close to finishing my Potions OWL with only one week to go, but nevermind that) where I knit lots of grey. The current dream is
* Make a jumper, perhaps Stilwell but with stripes out of the Vintage
* Spin and knit the merino/suri/silk into a shawl, perhaps Shaelyn or Zenaura...
* Transfigure this fleece into knitted leggings and a hat and a woven skirt
That's not too much for 4 months, right?
