Yarny Goodness!

There was lots of happy dancing here Saturday, when my package from far far away arrived! Stranding commenced on Sunday. Oh joy! My hands remember what to do! Change color - YAY!

Do you recognize this colorway and rib?! Does this photo help? You know the one! From Vogue Knitting Holiday 2007.
Want to knit one too? Anne at She Ewe Knits is having a 'special' through the end of November! Anne is my hero. She knit a color swatch for this sweater and casually mentioned that she likes these Jamieson colors together. I'm 'sold' because I liked her swatch and trust her color sense, so immediately order. Lorraine made this sweater in it's original yarn... Anne's swatch is so close! Look for yourself here. I'm blown away! Holy cow Batman!

More yarny goodness from far far away...
I caught the Kauni fever! Village Yarn & Tea ordered some. I was late to the party (again) but managed to snag 300g of colorway EG - purple & pink! It's 1200 meters. No, I don't have a project in mind. I hope they order more in more colorways. That purple ball is from China... 924yds of cobweb cashmere! Again, no idea for a project, just had to have it. Similar to Lacey Lamb, but not stretchy.

Happy Thanksgiving! Got your turkey? Hope it's bigger than this one!
I'm sooo happy I don't have to go back to work until Monday! I'm off to work on the leaf pattern! Have a great week! m :)

I wish I could get yarn to you faster !!! It does seem to take longer to go across the Canada/US border these days -- Christmas parcels perhaps? or maybe it's all the Canadian's ordering from the US LOL!

Oh...wow...!!! You have Oregon! I can't wait to see your progress! I'm stuck in the Christmas knitting black hole... *sigh*

How's Fulmar?

I couldn't believe it myself- it's a terrific design and a fun knit.

Love your Kauni- I had no idea it came in that color/

How exciting to be knitting OREGON! I love that pattern (looks of it; I haven't knit it.) Have lots of knitting fun this long week-end!
