The Sweetest Sort of Mail

At the end of last week the mailman brought me some sweets in the mail,IMG_7701

The colorway is Honey, the yarn is Sweet Fingering and the dyer is the one and only Candy Skein!  This yarn is silky smooth, with a little sheen and it’s knitting up beautifully so far.  The 50/50 superwash merino and silk blend is a perfect yarn for small accessories that you want close to your skin and at 438 yards per skein, it’s a very generous amount for a little price tag!IMG_7703

The design? Coming soon, and because it’s not sooper seekrit, I can show you bits and pieces along the way!  Yay for public knitting! I really love the little candy charm that came with the skein, isn’t it adorable?IMG_7706

I had a really busy and fun weekend, I’ll share some of my adventures tomorrow!  What did you do this weekend?

 

Be Jealous. Be Very Jealous.

You might have noticed a fluctuating Stash Count over on my sidebar, and from the talk about how many skeins I’m using up with these felted bags, only be down about ten skeins doesn’t make much sense does it?  I did have to buy two more skeins of the yarn for the sweater I introduced Friday, so that made the count go up some.

But only two skeins?  What about the rest?  Why is the number still so high?

Well, I’ll tell you.  I got a gift.  A Yarn Gift.

70% cashmere, 30% silk

The most luxurious yarn that has ever graced my stash.  Filatura Di Crosa Superior.

I got this as a delayed Christmas present from my friend Megan (I have yet to give her her present, I’m a bad friend).  I haven’t a clue what to make with it yet, something smooshy that will touch my skin….I’m thinking a leotard or a onesie…but I’ll settle for a big cowl or scarf too 🙂
