So here’s my stash enhancement:
A few extra skeins of natural yarn from Wild Apple Hill Farm:
A sweaters worth of Teal also from Wild Apple Hill Farm – the plan for this is Idlewood – our knitting group is planning a small knit-a-long:
A sweater’s worth of Shepherd’s Wool from Stonehedge Fiber Mill:
I’m currently knitting Dark & Stormy out of this yarn, it’s a new worsted weight favorite – it feels like superwash but it isn’t. Love the hand of the yarn, the knitted fabric, the colors. Everything.
And the real score for the weekend (well not if you are talking to our JessaLu): 1330 yards of sport weight alpaca for …. $45!
I’m planning on either knitting the Dahlia cardigan designed by our Heather or the Leaving cardigan from Twist Collective. I want to finish Dark and Stormy first – I’m 2 inches away from splitting off the sleeves.
All in all, well thought out purchases at Rhinebeck this year – I’ve clearly been chomped on by the sweater bug as I didn’t buy ANY sock yarn! The goal for this year is to knit all of this up by next year’s Rhinebeck. Not sure how that is going to work, being that I have yarn still from last year. Oops.
