I have been a good girl, and did not overspend my yarn budget just quite yet. But recently I did indulge in some yarns.
Hartlam Yarns had some really gorgeous yarns, and I added some new colours to my stash. I think the Flamingo Baby should become something pretty for my daughter, she loves the colours, and also pink flamingos. I have made notes for myself to knit the Baby Leeks first, and am thinking a lacy scarf, in a leafy pattern. And then another shawl, most definitely in the Plan Sailing, it is such a beautiful blue, with a little silver sparkle.
Carle, the creative behind Nurturing Fibres in the Western Cape, launched her latest colour palette for 2013, which included both semi-solids and variegated yarns. So very stunning, it was indeed difficult to make a choice, but in the end I decided on three semi-solids and three variegated sock yarns. And three DK singles in Merino. The Aubergine is so warm and inviting, and of course, I had to have a blue – so “Winter” it was.
Now I just need to keep myself from wanting to start a project with each one of them.
