Sometimes at January spin-in, I have time to shop--
mostly before the participants arrive in the morning
or after they leave in the evening.
I did find this lovely 50/50 merino/silk blend
at Dicentra Designs booth--"Russian Puppet"--
love Lisa's names for her fibers!
This was a gift from my partner (the other half of my brain!)
Handspun natural color cotton!
And a Cowl--although, not purple--it suits me just fine!
Another pretty from Lisa @ Dicentra Designs is
this felted reversible shawl--soft and drapey,
I couldn't resist!
The front side combines many techniques
and textures--wool/silk roving on
Yummy! Yummy--colors just like the Gulf of
Mexico waters on Destin beaches
I have three sets of HiYa Hiya interchangeable knitting needles
and love them--when talking with lace maker extraordinary Fran--
one who knit this fabulous lace shawl.
She said she uses ChiaoGoo Needles
I just had to try them! Amazon here I come!
and the needles arrive within two days!
I rarely use needles above size 8--this set is perfect!
So anxious to try them out on my lace knitting projects.
