Woolfest the 3rd part, heavy with pictures once more
Donation from knitting4fun. Wool and silk, very soft.
From Freyalynne more purples aren't they lovely?
From Amanda at Natural Dye Studio,more lilac purples. Are we sensing a theme here? I didn't pick all these yarns BTW, I asked the people to choose for me:)
Jeni at Fyberspates chose this sock yarn, more on the same colour scheme:))
So as you can see people were more than generous with their sock yarn gifts. I feel so grateful for their kindness. I will really be having fun knitting all these up I can tell you.
Shall we go on to my stash enhancement now? Did you want to see what I bought for me? You would?
Well ok then if you insist.
200gm of fyberspates mohair, yummy colours and I do love knitting with Jeni's mohair:)
knitwitches sock yarn in sapphires.
a pendant cutter Wye Sue INSISTED I purchase as I really would need one:)
I also purchased the latest edition of yarn forward magazine and it has some very nice patterns in it. Kerrie and Lou were doing a roaring trade. I do hope that the magazine continues to go from strength to strength. Especially now that it will be published 10 times a year.
Then there was some sock knitting. This is how far I am on the blue sock.
Yarn is 100% merino 4ply from Martasyarns.com.au. Really soft and deep deep colours. Sadly the lady died last year so no more of this:(
When I arrived home yesterday, my package from Fyberspates was waiting. 2 skeins of Jenis new self striping sock yarn. I saw some samples knit up at Woolfest in various colours and all I can say is Noro eat your heart out. Its soft its silky and it stripes beautifully.
I purchased Ravens 2, dark and mysterious
and violets, deep deep violets:)
I think that is all. Hope it gave you a flavour of the weekend
I'm going to drink hot chocolate now and catch up on my blog reading and knitting
