I recently posted how I was able to score some of the very coveted Wollmeise sock yarn from The Loopy Ewe. I wound my skein of Brombeere into a cake


and started knitting the shoulderette version of Laminaria. I'm done with the Start chart. See?


While deployed J bought a new camera, see how the yarn's colors just flow. Gorgeous. But as much as I hate to say it, that's one of the few things I like about Wollmeise right now. Don't get me wrong, its gorgeous stuff, but right now it feels so cottony...I am really hoping it softens up in the wash. I was able to get 4 skeins so I think until the craziness dies down, I'll be able to survive with just my 4 skeins.

An acquatinance of mine let me know that in October there will be a Knit and Stitching show in London. I signed up to go and am looking foward to a hubby and kiddo free day. I think it will be nice, something to look foward to as well. This also will be my first time in London! Eeek! But hopefully 2 more people sign up as if we don't have at least 4 people, the center will cancel it.

Hopefully this week I'll be able to post pictures of my most recent spinning...and I want to take new pictures of our new dinner table and our beautiful new bed that we acquired today.

You know, I've been curious as to how much of the Wollmeise thing was hype and how much was truth. Dream in Color Smooshy is another one...people go gaga over it, but I find it 'crunchy' to work with.

Wow, I didn't think it was possible to buy Wollemeise outside of the black market, LOL! You picked a lovely colour, that's for sure. Now you know what it's like... I like the "crunchy" analogy, it would probably drive me nuts too...
