it's crushes time! i finally got a chance to take some pics of my newest yarn and fabric lovelies! mmmmmm.....so yummy all of them! i can't even decide which ones i love the most! i indulged big time recently on my first 2 skeins ever of madelinetosh tosh sock
! i cannot wait to knit with these skeins. i knew when my lys - the beehive wool shop
, got their big shipment of madtosh in that i absolutely had to get a skein of earl grey. i needed it. i didnt' even think twice. the extra skein of celadon was a welcome addition and because it's so hard to get madtosh where i love in such a wide array of colors i spoiled myself and got 2 and it was worth it. so gorg! i didn't even realized how nicely they match with each other until i got outside and into my car. a happy coincidence since now i think i may knit them in the same project. not sure what yet but my wheels are happily spinning.
one of my other favorite yarn companies - quince and co
, recently released a new yarn! owl
is here! and it doesn't disappoint! a gorgeous blend of american wool and american alpaca these are a more than welcome addition to my stash. a group of us where i live all went in on a big order to scoop up some of there lovely colorways. i can't wait to wind these up and get swatching!!!
|quince and co owl in colorways - cilantro, sokoke, and cerulean|
as for fabric i hit up a big pink castle fabrics
sale a while back and got some beautiful new fabrics for a steal of a price!!!! i had been waiting to try the liberty lifestyle prints
for some time and so i didn't hesitate when i spotted the
gorgeous mix of blues and corals in cranston
. love it! and then when i spotted the double gauze from kokka
on the right i just about fainted! i got such a good deal i thought my eyes were seeing things wrong! needless to say i got enough of both the liberty and kokka prints to make new dresses for myself.
i haven't decided on which pattern yet but will definitely be posting something soon. i've narrowed it down to a few and am hoping to finalize my wandering eye sooner than later..lol. i bought myself an invisible zipper foot finally (no more cowboy style zipper installations for me) so i'm all ready for another laurel dress or blouse maybe or any other garment with an invisible zipper. bring it on zippers!
