Obligatory SP6 post.... SQUEEEEEE!
I have my pal and zir blog is most edifying. I do so look forward to 3 months of spoilage and making somebody quiver with joy upon the postman's arrival. And the person whose SP I am has contacted me and there is much quivering with joy over an already delightful correspondence.
I've set up a super seeeeekrut identity with which to communicate with my pal and I must say, I'm grinning from ear to ear about it.
Destashed a little more today. Alas, not much I feel would be worth listing on ebay, if only that I'm not sure how much "single" skeins of one thing or another really get people excited. But it was worthy to go thru the stash, at any rate and I've now reorganized so that it's all by weight in the bins. Bulky to worsted in one bin, DK to lace in the other. Will be easier to go find stuff depending on what project I want to start.
Ripped out and re-cast on the sari silk garter stitch scarf. Sari silk, not as annoying as KSH to frog, but vexing all the same. I'm working from two skeins and just alternating stripes of two, carrying the other yarn up the side of the stripe. The variations of color in the two skeins are so extreme that a definite stripe pattern is visible and I'm really liking the results I am now getting. Xmas present. Not for me. Will delight somebody, I am sure.
The handpainted I'm donating for Give A Little arrived, it's GORGEOUS and I'm really excited about the fact that someone is going to win it. The Azul Bonitas is just... wow. Saturated. Stunning. also, reeking of vinegar. Yay mordant!
