I’ve made it to Friday again, huzzah! This was a hectic-seeming week and production just was not what I had ambitiously planned for at the outset. But I did manage to get all of these up on eBay:
…which is to say, some 6 pounds of superwash top, some oddments of very nice fibers, a few pounds of new sock blends, all containing alpaca, and repeating a few favourite colourways:
like Tiger Lily…
Plus, there’s a huge batch of 400-yard / 1 ounce skeins of handpainted merino/silk millspun yarn (millspun, as in machine spun, lest anyone not be sure what I mean by that — I tend to prefer to say “millspun” rather than “commercial” as there are plenty of commercial handspun yarns, after all):
These are the same yarns I used in this fella here:
the Falling Leaves Isosceles — and each skein has enough yarn in it for something similar, scarf-sized!
My faves from this batch are the Indian Summer shown above, and…
…this Autumn Stroll.
This weekend, I might do fibery stuff, but I swear it’s going to all just be personal. You wanna know what non-work yarn dorkery I got to this week? This is it:
Hardly anything. Fewer than 800 yards of yarn all told that is actually for me. The horror!
