Yesterday as I was leaving to go get my haircut the mailman delivered me a package....saw who it was from and immediately ripped it open. It was from my niece, Lila, and my bil/sil! Lila painted me a picture for my birthday and they bought me this awesome yarn. It's Farmhouse Silk Blend, dk weight in the colorway, Magenta (which is like my favorite color)! It's 34% silk, 33% cotton, and 33% American Grown Lamb's Wool. Gorgeous...350 yds.... I've got to find a very special pattern for this...any ideas????
I'm in a charity group on Ravelry that knits/cro's chemo hats...a lady contacted the moderator and asked her if she knew anyone who spins and would like some raw alpaca fiber...she thought of me and had the lady contact me and she sent me this awesome alpaca fiber! I'll need to process it and then card it before I use it. So with some of my birthday money I'm going to get some hand carders to card it with. Then I can knit some warm, lovely hats with it!
