Ok I got two skeins of yarn, not much of a haul. I'm saving my money for the vendors night at the knitting guild. Anyways I got 1 skien of louet gems sport wight (left) and 1 skein of hand-dyed fleece artist Merino 2/6 .
Here's a close-up of the merino 2/6
Here's the gems. I think Im going to make socks out of the gems and the merino 2/6 is going to be a scarf.
In other knitting news, I picked this up the other day
It's a lopi sweater for me. I've been working on it for a few years now, and I completely abandoned last winter (you can only work on it in the winter, would you what to have all that wool on your lap in the summer?) but I think I'll finish it this year.
I started it a few years ago and I just started the first sleeve. It's going well. I also just started this:
its halcyon and the yarn is fiddlesticks knitting Zephyr Laceweight Wool-Silk that I dyed. It's turning out better that I thought.
