Warning!!!! Heavy picture post ahead!
I THINK. Honest to God, I don't know if I have the willpower.
Note: sock yarns do not count.
On an even brighter note, I received a package from my SP!!! She is the BEST!!! She went above and beyond. Thanks, SP!Look at this stuff. I have been admiring Arctic Lace online and here it is!!!
It is a very interesting read, I might add. And look at the Alpaca! Can't wait to spin this!
Bath and Body, my fave!
One of the best gifts was for my two pals Fritz and Mia. It squeaks like a mouse and Mia will play with it forever. It has been hilarious.
And last but not least. Truffles!!!!!! Homemade truffles. I can't show you because we ate them immediately....like the gluttons we are. But, believe me, they were amazing. The peppermint truffles were to die for. My mouth is watering again just thinking of them! Thanks again, SP!!!! REALLY! I can't wait to find out who you are.
Here is the platinum from Mama-E all spun and plied.
It is 50/50 merino and tencel. I am thinking of a lace shawl or scarf with this depending on my yardage. The sheen on this is just stunning.
And socks, socks, socks. This is the heel on some socks I should be finishing this weekend.
Notice the needles?
They are Celtic Swan Needles made of sterling in size 0. They are a dream to knit with. Yes, they do bend a little if you aren't careful. I am a super tight knitter with a death grip on my needles, so it has helped me lessen the mongo-grip a little to knit with these. Amazingly, it is a little more comfortable to knit. Imagine that.
;0) I also received some in the bronze that she makes, but I have yet to try them. They are gorgeous as well!
I haven't cast on for the Zauberflote, yet. Surprised? Yeah, me, too. I am still working on my SoDaWL and Elizabeth I. and Luskentyre.....and the list goes on and on............but now that I have a little taste for finished objects...I think I may finish one or two more before the cast-on. :0) Maybe.
And in closing, here is a little shot I found as we headed out to my family for Christmas. heh I couldn't resist it, you know me.
