Sigh. Swoon. I think I mentioned that I did a bit of stressed out yarn acquisition a few weeks ago. It arrived yesterday from Beaverslide Dry Goods in Montana, and I do not regret it. I am already daydreaming about what to do with these 5 skeins of super soft worsted lambswool in October Skye, 5 skeins of wool/mohair worsted in winter wheat, and 2 in snapdragon. Garter yoke cardigan? Girl cobblestone? Striped hourglass? For now, lingering over the planning process is enough. I’ve crammed these skeins into the bookshelf above all that I still have to read and process (oh, and write about) this semester. A few more weeks of the grind, and then summer!
Summer, for me, means the start of my CSA, the chance to read more slowly/deliberately, a road trip in a westerly direction with the dog…but mostly, it brings the chance to fully exhale.
Holy mackerel that’s some gorgeous yarn. I think I have a similar colorway to the blue, but two skeins of the wool/mohair. I’m doing the same thing with my new yarns; they’re sitting patiently on the bed in the spare room, so when I walk in there I get a whiff of sheepy goodness. Good luck with the rest of your work!
Oooh, I love Beaverslide. So sheepy and wonderful. I am so tempted to pick up more of that October Skye (I got two skeins of it awhile back for mittens/gloves) to make a sweater.
Good luck with the rest of your semester!
That’s one yarn I still haven’t tried and some day I will fix that. I love their colors and your choices are wonderful.
So pretty! I love that vibrant blue. I’m jealous that you only have a few more weeks — we’re on the quarter system and going strong until mid-June.
I am drooling.
And I love the idea of a striped Hourglass.
That is one very suitable stressed out yarn acquisition. Beautiful stuff!!!
Oooh, look at all that beautiful sheepy wool… Mmmm, my favourite! I hear you about the need to exhale – and the yarn purchasing under stress!
