I have not been able to get away to my LYS or to any store lately, except Lowes and Target for cleaning and fix-it supplies. So I have been busy shopping late at night. It generally works out for me, but then. . .
Several weeks ago I was reading knit blogs late at night. . .guess where this is going? I love PayPal, but they make it too easy to complete quick transactions on-line. So I joined a fiber club, but I was overly eager and did not read the fine print. Later in the month I received my fiber. Much to my surprise, it was roving. Roving is wool that is ready to be spun, but I am not a spinner; I am a knitter.
I am confessing all of this so that I can praise the person who prepared and dyed the roving because she was generous in her treatment of my mistake and it WAS my mistake. As a result I have three hanks of beautiful hand-dyed, hand-spun fiber to share today. So if you are a knitter, please consider stopping by Cosy's blog (@ http://cosymakes.com) to see her beautiful new baby and the items for sale in her ESTY shop (@ http://www.etsy.com/shop/cosymakes). Here is what I got as part of my refund.
Snapdragon Light Fingering in three swoony colors: yellow, bright green, and blue green (it is darker than pictured here, I was photographing in bright sunlight). Not sure what I am going to make with them ~~ but not socks as this is wool. I am thinking scarves and/or shawls, as there is 700 yards in each hank. Whatever I decide there is plenty to make whatever I want.
