…the one with all the enhancement.

Stash enhancement, that is. ;o)

When Risa arrived on Friday, the second thing she did (after admiring my peonies – Tina, you can stop giggling now  – and laughing at my dogs) was throw yarn at me.  I know!

Handspun from Risa

This yarn began as roving I gave to her a couple of months ago, never expecting to see it again.  Isn’t it gorgeous?  It’s a true three-ply and the first she’s ever done.  How lucky am I?  ;o)

Next up are the fest acquisitions:

Wool Peddlar BFL 'Barnwood'
Wool Peddlar Superwash Merino "Enchanted"

Spunky Eclectic Superwash Merino "Rocky Mtn High"
Spunky Eclectic Merino/Bamboo "Potluck"

The above was purchased at Massachusetts S&W (if you click after the whole page loads, you can click through all the photos on this post like a slideshow).  From left to right:  Wool Peddler BFL in “Barnwood”, Wool Peddler Merino in “Enchanted”, Spunky Eclectic Superwash Merino in “Rocky Mountain High” and Spunky Eclectic Panda (Merino/Bamboo) in “Potluck”.  I bought one more Spunky Panda hank-o-roving but since I’m spinning it already (on Emma), my living room is a cave and the sun has disappeared, I couldn’t take a picture of that one yet.

I didn’t mention in my last post that I took Risa to visit Colorful Stitches on Friday.  I also neglected to mention that some yarn happened to jump into my bag while I was there:

Madelinetosh Sock
Lacey Lamb "French Blue"

Madelinetosh and Lacey Lamb.  So pretty…even prettier is the hostess gift from Tamara of Spincerely Yours:

Spincerely Yours 'blueberry'

It freaking sparkles, how cool is that?  ;o) (she made it, even.  If you follow that link to her Etsy shop up there ^ odds are good you can get some of your own…)

  • StoryTime Sampler 3 February 2016

    I don’t know if this project will stay here, but I wanted a spot to put all of my photos for the current sampler I’m cross stitching.

    02-03-2016

    I’ve put this on ‘hibernating’ status since I’m trying to decide what to do - I kind of want to pick my favorite 6 and make a mini sampler since there are some books in the mix that aren’t my favorites
