Little Aliens, and Monsters and Zipper Pulls and Berries…
Several new items in my Etsy Shop.
And while it HAS been quite a snowy winter, just like they said back in early December, The WIP piles continue to grow. I have, however, done a bit of Ravelympic work… ripped a scarf and started a new one from the yarn. Researched dyeing with Wilton's, in the hopes that I might dye some of the great yarns I've picked up at thrift shops.
The thrift shops have been flush with great yarn finds this winter! I can hardly keep up with cataloging it. I found almost all of the yarns from a Colinette AbFab Afghan Kit - retail $180 - in the Nightshade colorway. I just added a couple more and now I am psyched to start the afghan! (The yarns cost me maybe $6) In the same haul, I got several skeins of super soft hand painted merino wools - no ball bands or skein tags, but I'm guessing at least one of them is a Mountain Colors Wool Quarters. And at least two of them are full skeins of Noro - Big Kureyon and Iro - All burn tested as wool. There were also several off white skeins that I hope to experiment with with the Wilton's dyes.
There is something about reskeining all these yarns that has been really satisfying. They are really nice to handle!
