By special request from Bryony over at Library Girl Knits
I present: THE STASH!
HUGE skein of charcoal grey three-ply (in the sense of three strands plied together) pure wool from the Isle of Harris. Intended for vintage socks, but my understanding of "3-ply" was "fine fingering" not "fat aran-weight". We sorted out the problem and some more is on its way in single-strand thin-ness! But I love this - it is soft and wholesome - for Log-Cabin socks?
Rowan Cork - in Pillar box red - for Log-cabin socks from "Handknit Holidays"
Vintage 3-ply Hayfield Fingering for (yawn) 1940's museum socks
Opal Feelings in Rainbow - for jaywalkers!
Rowan Botany True 4 ply - three odd balls for stripey socks if I run out of other wool (yeah right!)
Regia Bamboo in Papillon - Friday Harbour socks for my mother - she can't wear wool
Fyberspates in Sea Scape - P-word socks for a friend (if I can pluck up the courage for the P-word charts!)
Socks That Rock in Lucy - not more jaywalkers?! Maybe for Here be Dragons socks - yummy stuff this!
Three little leftover balls: Fyberspates in Pansy and Foxglove and a scrap of Lorna's Laces in Desert Flower
That's all folks!
But naughty Bryony has let me in on a secret! Have you seen the yummy colours over at:
