This time I'm loving it but I am a bit worried that I'm using up yarn quicker than I thought I would. I've got quite a bit further than in the photo above and I've used up over half the yarn. I've done some rough calculations and I think it'll be okay.
I've had a couple of lovely parcels in the last week. I had quite a bit of yarn arrive for upcoming magazine designs and most of that has gone straight off to my wonderful knitters. But I have got some for me too.
I got 2 bundles of gradated yarn from Colourshift Yarn. A bundle going from pale pink to red.
And a bundle of violets and purples.
I've not quite decided what to knit with this set yet but it'll be a shawl of some sort, making the most of the colour shifts. I also got 2 extra skeins for swatching which I thought was very kind.
The Sweet Georgia Yarns February Fiber Club parcel arrived. I haven't touched my wheel for a while but this has gotten me itching to spin again. I had planned to start something else and I've got one spinning project already on the wheel and a bobbin waiting to be navajo plyed. Think I'll need to spin more. This pretty bundle is merino/silk/nylon and sparkly silver bits.
Look at all the beautiful colours. I'm thinking this will have to be navajo plyed to make the most of those colours. I'm not sure if i want to do two navajo projects in a row though.
What are you knitting or spinning at the moment? Tell me in the comments.
