New Threads Friday, November 2009


New threads as in new yarn!

Seeing something like this in the hallway is still a very exciting moment for me: I love getting packages~!

And even more exciting?

When the package is filled with a boatload of Y.A.R.N.


Because I am a greedy little monster, I could not resist Elann’s current Lana Pura offering and scooped up three lovely neutral colourways. All are destined to be sweaters; I might even deviate off the path and knit another pullover!!

The merino content of this yarn is wonderful and the construction, multi-ply tight twist, will make a most interesting fabric.

    Was their shipping fast? I have been thinking about yarn from that site for what feels like years!

  3. I love that phrenology head with three yarns photo. I hope you leave it like that as art until you need to knit up the yarn.

    Love the colors you choose! Which ones were they? I can’t quite match them up to their website…so it’s hard to tell.

    Athena Grey, Flannel Grey & Terra Firma

    Can’t wait to get started on some goodies with these…
