I'd rather be this way

Hand-dyed 4ply weight polwarth and silk

Hand-dyed 4ply weight polwarth and silk. This yarn chose me. Twice it was brought across the room to me by knitters who know me too well and twice I put it back. Then it literally jumped out of the shelf at me as I walked past and I gave in.

Teeny 45g of hand-spun, hand-dyed wensleydale wool

To die for hand-dyed, hand-spun Dew Drop Fancy - see those sweet little clear beads?

Hand-spun, hand-dyed wool and mohair in a tweedy blend. Gorgeous. There are a few skeins in stash that will be put with this for a blankie.

Bamboo needles specially for Opal socks. $9 a set - buy them.

I totally love the blue polwarth/silk - the Dew Drop ain't bad either!
