Yeah. More of that kind of stuff! Let’s see a few closeups:
Oh, I’m quite fond of this one, I am. So fond of it, I’ll have to do another one, for me! This one is superwash/alpaca/nylon (the sock kind, not the glitter kind) and I want mine to have tussah silk in it.
Olive Branch, here, is nice too. So nobody buy it, and then I’ll steal it for myself. Just look at it glittering in the sun there… just makes me want to sit right down and spin it. And it may be a sock blend, but I want to spin it into something for a shawl. A glittery, gleaming olive green shawl like dragon scales… yeah, that would work.
I blew it with Life’s A Beach already. Someone’s gone and snagged most of it.
Oh yes, and I decided I’d list that orange yarn (and don’t miss the “math is hard” update at the bottom of that post, btw. It turns out I shouldn’t try to work numbers from my log book before finishing the second cup of coffee. Ahem.) with a reserve, and see if it meets the reserve of “cheapest I’d be willing to sell this.”
Oh! And this sampler:
is likely to be the last one for a while, because I’ve found the perfect home for those odds and ends from now on. And this is a big sampler too, 8 whole ounces plus a little, or about 235 grams… one could do a lot with that.
That’s it for me and my “Shop With Abby” plug for the week. Now I’ve got to get myself back to slaving over a hot carder… but BEFORE I FORGET! Just let me know you came in via my blog, and I’ll ship your purchases for free.
