Mo...referring to Mo Farah's wonderful win in the 10000 meter race, which I just had to mention. Let me show you some new stash I acquired. Yes, Mo yarn! Just because I love to enable you and tempt you. Here you go, first up Tempted Yarns.
Colors : Bricktown, Guerilla Grrl, and Flora. Yes more pink, because you know my stash is severely lacking pink. heh. You can get Tempted Yarns at Loopy Ewe, but I purchased these at the Tempted online store. Can I just say that Stacy from Tempted has excellent customer service? Bonus, my order came with some lovely BeaGin stitch markers .
I decided to pay another visit to Camilla (Twist&Twine), because I adore her and her yarn.
Love how some dyers have their own signature packaging. I always know Twist&Twine by the lovely purple tissue paper wrapped in red and white twine. :) I know more pink. Now that I have added more pink to my stash, the next order may include other colors.
Alright the enabling is out of the way. How about some new items that I like to say, "jumped on the needles". Since I had no socks on the needles, I remedied that very quickly.
Some nice Simple Textured Socks. I dug deep in the stash for this lovely shade of pink because I needed something mild after those bright socks I just finished. The yarn is Pagewood Farms Yukon in the color Cotton Candy. The yarn is incredible and knits up very much like Cotton Candy.
Here is a color and yarn that has me absolutely giddy. When I say this yarn knits up like butter, I am not kidding. The color has me in love. This shawl is Lyrica Euterpe by Romi Hill. The yarn is Skein Top Drawer Sock in the color Little Red. Here is the kicker, I have never knit a shawl with out having an extra 100 yards to play with. This pattern calls for 430 yards and I have 437, which is cutting it extremely close. I am warning you now that if I run out of yarn before this shawl is finished, you will hear a primal scream all across the lands (tad dramatic-but true)!
That in a nutshell has been my week and weekend. Tomorrow will be taking the sister out to The Urban Tea Loft for her birthday lunch. How about you, how is your weekend going? Hope it is filled with yarn.
Leaving you with this lovely Etsy video. Enjoy!
Happy weekend everyone!
