Of course I'm knitting, but have not finished anything yet. So nothing I want to show just yet, except I finally got the December Spunky Eclectic Fiber of the Month installment called "Party Dress". Amy sent it off on December 19th, and it arrived at my house on January 18th! It was posted airmail. As I said before, I think they strapped this package on the back of a turkey!
I've seen pictures all spun up of this fiber on other blogs already. So I was prepared for the blinding colores with my sunglasses on ;o). I love this picture, the red is fabulous. Amy dyed the fiber in long color changes, so this will definitely be Navajo plied, whenever. Not a colorway I would have chosen myself, but hey. Using ones comfort colors gets boring too. I saw a lovely Baby Surprise Jacket made with this colorway, here. It is definitely cheerful, and made me realize that it doesn't have to be a hat all the time.
Almost forgot to mention this again. I've put up a new category on my side bar. It's links to fiber/yarn online stores, where I've bought fiber/yarn or would like to do so in the future. I'm collecting links to stores, but would like to find more Canadian stores, so if you happen to know of a website, which sells spinning fiber, please let me know. I put up the links mainly so I can find the stores faster, I'm so disorganized, so this helps. Not that I need anything anytime soon. (unfortunately)
Monica had a contest on her blog a while ago, and I won this huge skein of yarn! This is 973yds of wool/nylon blend yarn! Originally my prize would have been some red sock yarn, but Monica knows me so well, and sent me some orangy goodness instead! I'm thinking socks, and I'm dieing to know if it makes lovely stripes or not.
Thank you, Monica! :o)
