Stash Enhancements

While I have been busy with outdoor projects and catching up on other things in my practice, I have also been plotting and planning my new projects.

I am so excited with what has been arriving in the mail.  First up are the yarns I purchased from Dyeabolical Yarns.

There Goes Bill colorway on Targhee Sock

These are destined to be new socks.  I love both colorways.  There Goes Bill just happens to be Green and Gold.  I will be sporting these at the next Packer game I attend at Lambeau Field.

Then there was a surprise stash enhancement.  I won a skein of this beautiful, soft skein of Vice.  This yarn is merino, cashmere and silk in a buttery yellow.  I have the yarn fairy and Hunter Hammersen to thank for this.

Carnal - Heavy Fingering

Hunter Hammersen is a very talented designer.   I have decided to use this yarn to knit one of Hunter’s patterns.  I have her book, “The Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet, Volume I,” and several single patterns.  Her patterns are so lovely; it is really hard to choose.

I also have this from Cream City Yarn.

Tosh Merino Light in Iris colorway

These will be Diluvian.  A sock pattern from Hunter Hammersen.

I chose the Iris colorway in honor of one of my favorite musicians, Prince.  My little homage to “Purple Rain.”

Last, but certainly not least, are my two skeins fromThe Lemonade Shop.  This skein will be a pair of socks.

I have had such fabulous mail this month!  We are so lucky to have such talented dyers and designers in the knitting world.  I can’t wait to start all of my new projects!
