Collinette Shimmer, love this colour. my local craft shop is getting more and more Collinette yarns in every week now. The one on the right is Mirasol, think its alapca/merino/silk mix and is for a present.
100gr of Shetland Sock Wool from an Ebay seller who actually lives about 10 mins drive from me. Onlyrealised that when the parcel arrived.Never knitted with Shetland wool before.
And Cascade Dolce (think it's called Dolce), it's a merino/alpaca and silk blend. So soft.Once the Sockamania socks are done and the last Isle of Wight pair then I'm casting on with one of the above yarns. Not sure which one yet. It's probably going to be the Mirasol as it's a present which needs to be done. Not decided exactly what to knit with it yet though. Then after that it's the Manos Silk Blend. It's just too gorgeous for words.
Another surprise yarn parcel arrived today. It was a parcel with 3 skeins of my yarn that I sent off to hte US in November which has gotten lost. At least it got returned to me. That's only 2 of several lost parcels that have made it back to me. No news yet on the big box of Merino Sock Yarn for Yarny Goodness yet. Hope it'll eventually make it to the destination or back to me. Shame for all those gorgeous yarns to be lost.
Bad news this week, which has actually made me feel quite down, as well as not sleeping well this week. we had the MOT done on our car on Monday plus a service and it failed. Very 3 new tires and some welding (car was in the garae for the last 2 days) later and we've spent nearly £500 on the car this week. Think it might be time to get a new one.
