I did a fair amount of stash building in the past couple days. My sister Cheryl and I went around town for 1)Pearl Cotton for her sewing and 2)Yarn for my stash. Actually the intent was to use some of my birthday money for the ever-expanding stash.
So...Trish and Cheryl bought me: Hand Maiden(Fleece Artist) Silk Shell kit in Vintage and a Skein of Alchemy Yarn's Synchronicity in Southern View.
I purchased one skein of Be Sweet's Magic Balls (keep your mind out of the gutter!) which support's South African women) in Victorian Ball.
I also got 8 skeins of Classic Elite's Bam Boo for Annie Modesitt's Silk Corset.
Then I went home and spend money from my in-law's. I bought Jamieson Spindrift 2ply for Alice Starmore's Abalone from Pacific Coast Highway.
Beginning the end of September I am taking a project class from Village Yarn and Tea. I love this kind of class where you just come in and knit and meet nice people and there is someone there to help you if run into issues. I used to take this type of class from Acorn Street but wanted something a bit closer to my home. I decided on Abalone because it is a fair isle project using steeks and I've always been squeemish about doing a steek. Who wants to CUT into yarn? Yikes!
I would post some photos but I'm too lazy to get the yarn out, take photos and load them. I'm just too busy knitting!
