Also at Bendi

Got a hold of some new cheap buttons, and a rainbow of Landscape dyes. That should keep me going for a while.

Let's see... what else have I finished in July?

Frosty socks :)

What they look like when the frost thaws. Hehe. Love these, and in Wollmeise, too.

Did I show you these already? Nephew tops.

An experiment in Navajo 4ply. Tricky to ply, but the effect, knitted up, should be interesting.

Nice thick merino/faux cashmere. Soft and bright.

And yarn number one for my next NEWT!!!!
My next NEWT is a mix of Muggle Studies (dressing to blend in with Muggles) and Transfiguration (Vanishing some stash). Basically, I've got a kilo of fibre from Southern Cross Fibres in dark purple (600g) and this matching multicolored fibre (400g). I'm going to spin it all up, knit an Idlewood top and some gloves and a cowl, and re-study the skill of Entrelac while I'm at it. I've started knitting this one (400y of n-ply!) into entrelac gloves. Love them so far.

Well, Bendigo was about 2 weeks ago, now. My computer is being bizarre and won't let me connect to the internet, and my little ipod won't work with Blogger properly. So I'm at work, quickly putting on a few photos. :)

*crosses fingers*

Here are two lots of sock yarn I got from Fiberific! She said she's just started dyeing, and I liked these two as a pair.

And the two brown ones, well, notice the colorway is "Byron". Moseley Park had about a hundred different yarns with names as color names. I found a "Tamara" (which was a horrible pink) but this variegated brown is nice... and half silk.

From Kathy's Fibres I got some BFL in Forrestry and a grey mixed with silk. Also got some shiny and sparkley stuff for mixing :)

Computer is throwing a big tantrum at the moment, and iPod won't cooperate with Blogger. Hope to figure it out before too long, though :)
