I have acquired a bunch of new stuff recently. What better day to share photos of it than New Stuff Sunday?
When the Knitgirllls came to visit me last weekend, they brought me some lovely prezzies. A lovely shawl pin:
This is from Knitting Notions, and the wood is lacewood. I think this could double as a hairstick.
And they spun some yarn for me!
This is spun from Tempted Yarns roving, in the “Tree Hugger” colorway. There’s plenty here for a small shawl or long scarf. It’s about DK weight, I think. I’m wondering how it would look in a Trillian-style scarf?
We went to fibre space during the Knitgirllls’ visit. Conveniently, Brooklyn Tweed’s new yarn “Loft” debuted shortly beforehand, and fibre space is one of the few shops in the country who carries it. I, of course, bought some.
I got 4 shades of lavender/purple with the idea of making a shawl with a gradient look.
I also purchased some in the Fossil colorway, thinking it would look good knit up in a traditional shetland lace pattern.
When we went away to the mountains, we met up with my imaginary friend L-B. Being L-B, she brought us all gifts. I got some yummy Sunshine Yarns wool:
We took a side trip to Kid Hollow Farm, and there I got some gorgeous mohair/wool blend yarn, again with the gradient idea:
So much new yarn! So many ideas! So little time to knit!
