Hah! I didn’t go crazy on yarn! so ner to all those people who said I couldn’t do it :-D Fibre now, well that’s a whole other thing and I’m sure I didn’t make any promises…

Firstly, all my purchases fit into this bag:


Are you impressed ;-) Some people needed vacuum space bags and five suitcases to get their stash home!

The sum total of the yarn purchases: 360g of 4-ply hand-dyed pure wool for £7.20 will be a shawl some day. 


The fibre purchases:


I don’t have space to list it all here. To summarise, I bought the 300g of Shetland I wanted for my mitten project, 400g of variegated merino/silk tops, some space-dyed tussah silk and a whole stack of samples. Extra bobbins so I can spin more than one project at a time, and the book was a pressie from mum :-)

I need to get spinning!

    Nice restraint you showed on the yarn front….but I guess you made up for it with all that fibre! ;-) It looks like you’ve got loads of great goodies there. Someday I shall take up spinning, I think…..but my yarn stash is enough for our house at the moment. Have fun with all that great fibre!
