Hello, my name is Martine and I am a yarnaholic! Oh dear… I have indulged in a fair bit of stash enhancement over the past few weeks. It’s the sales, you see. I cannot resist bargain yarn. Now I am dabbling in knitwear design, it seems that I have an even better excuse to enhance my stash. So in the interests of full disclosure I thought I’d “Shop and Show”. Would anyone else like to confess a recent yarn acquisition?
First I have 3 skeins of Malabrigo Sock from the Loop sale in colourways Boticelli Red, Terracotta and Impressionist Sky:
This is a skein of The Sanquine Gryphon’s lace weight yarn in Mithril. I am a big Lord of the Rings fan so simply HAD to have this. It was purchased from a lovely podcasting pal of mine called Ursa; she podcasts as The Pagan Knitter. I was happy to benefit from her de-stashing.
Finally I purchased 4 balls of Knit Picks DK Gloss in Blackberry and 3 balls in Costal Grey. These were from the Great British Yarns sale. I have some sort of striped project (my own design) in mind for these…
