Yarn, yarn, glorious yarn
Nothing quite like it for warming the heart! Some people like Queen of the Froggers understand an odd concept called destashing. It's not something that computes round these parts but I was happy to help out a blogger in need :o) Got my paws on a whole kit of Summer Tweed to make Glimmer.
Another summery yarn next from another lovely blogger. This is a skein of Giotto that the lovely Knitty in Pink offered me after seeing my plans for summery scarves like the Rose Garden one which I'm pleased to report was happily received by the birthday girl at the start of the month. This colourway is perfect for a friend with an end of July birthday if I can just fit in the knitting of it!
You could say that's the crazy thing about buying more yarn, when will I knit it? But hey, it cheers my heart just looking at it so here are some soft squishy ornaments in the form of rich, red sock yarn. This comes from a UK ebay seller called The Yorkshire Wool Lady who seems to have a source for bulk buying yarn which she then winds off and sells on. Too good a bargain to miss. As was this lot of undyed wool - well it was for charity after all. Have plans for dyeing this if I can get some Kool Aid. I've still got a little space left around the house so I'm sure I'll have more to show off on my return from Canada!
