Happy Wednesday :)
I promised a Stash Enhancement post and I'm making good on my promise......mostly. See, I have a skein of Wollmeise Blend that I bought from someone on Ravelry via destashing......but I'll be damned, I can't find it! It's around here somewhere because I squeeeed a lot when it arrived but I must have put it away without photographing it. It'll turn up eventually. Before I'm dead, I hope.
But, I have other ones....
Yarn: Andes from Artfibers
Weight/Yardage: Aran/160 yds each
Colorway(s): Um....I have five of them.
I have a love of most everything from Artfibers and I was quite sad when they closed up their shop in San Francisco. So, I've been snagging up things I like when I find them. I caught these in a destash a couple weeks ago and decided they needed to be mine. So, now they're mine. No idea what I'm going to do with them....I'm pondering a stripey Baby Surprise Jacket but I'm worried I'll run out. I probably wouldn't but I'd still be worried about it. Whatever.
Yarn: Paton's Kroy Socks (top is 4-ply; bottom is FX)
Weight/Yardage: Sock/191 yds each (top) & 166 yds each (bottom)
Colorway(s): I don't know...one is a red/grey dealie and the other is a blue/grey.
At this point I need to admit that I'm just feeding my stash. It's hungry and wants all the yarn! But, in all honesty, after finishing my Vanilla Latte Socks, I realized that I needed some workhorse socks and Kroy is a workhorse yarn. I think I bought the above skeins for something like $6.40/each, which isn't bad when I know that means i'm getting a pair of socks (and then some) for less than $13...I've paid in the neighborhood of $30 for a skein of yarn to make a pair of socks. Soooo, two pairs of socks (and enough leftover to make another couple pairs of baby/kid socks) for $26 is not bad in my world.
If/when I find that skein of Wollmeaise, I'll share....but for now, this is all I have. I expect a club shipment or two soon enough but we'll see :)
Hope you're having a lovely day!
