There has been a distinct lack of self control around these parts lately. Apart from the Stitches and craft show, the 20% off sale at Spotlight and the unexpected but delightful surprise of a fibre show at our local community market today, I have also succumbed to the Wollmeise lust. All I can say is that I am happy, and nearly guilt-free, to be helping to stimulate the Australian (ok... and German) economy in it's time of dire need.
So what have I acquired lately? The stitches and craft show yielded some Pear Tree, and a beginners quilting kit, the Spotty sale some Paton's Soft Haze and the market some absolutely divine Lara Downs lace cashmere and some lace merino.I also have 2 kits from Yarnissima headed my way (complete with sock pattern and the elusive Wollmeise!) as well as a mystery package currently waiting at the post office for me. I'm excitedly hoping that this is the Yarn Collective Sock Club installment by The Yarn Cafe.
And in FO news I cast off the 'Go Fly a Kite' shawl last week. This is knit in Wollmeise 80/20 Twin in Wilder Mohn (wild poppy) colourway which I was lucky enough to score off Kiwi Fi - thanks again Fi! I love both the yarn and the shawl and can't wait until I have an outing to go to where I can wear it!
Speaking of over indulgence, there is quite a bit of it hidden underneath the black outfit ;) Note to self: must improve diet.
