And Happy Birthday to all the other January 2 babies!
(Tiara courtesy of Cara — thanks, Cara!)
About time I reported on my stash-enhancing activities of last week. The following items are ones I bought at the Yarn Lounge.
This is an alpaca/merino/soy silk blend — super bulky weight — from Alpaca Fiber Exchange, a total of 80 yards. The color is called “Toasted Begonia.”
This is merino/alpaca/silk blend — worsted weight — from Terra, a total of 300 yards. The color is called “Black Walnut.”
And this is 100% wool — about dk weight — from Plain & Fancy Sheep & Wool Co., a total of 800 yards. The color is called “Purple Storm.”
The rest of my acquisitions are being mailed to me, so they’ll have to wait for another day.
