I had a very successful destash at Ebay.
6 balls of "chintz" are now on their way to new homes.
And in their place, I have ordered some loveliness from the US of A!
This is Chocolate Fantasy from Duet Yarns. Superwash merino DK-weight, with a contrast smaller ball of chocolate for the heel / toe. I bought it from The Yarn Grove the instant I saw it on their site as this stuff sells like hotcakes! I also had a near-miss with the Turquoise Tranquility colourway, but got scared off by the shipping costs...
Because I had already ordered some "Deep Forest" Sea Wool and some "Cosmic Dawn"Basic Merino (both from Fleece Artist) via an Ebay.com seller.
I am not sure that the books balance, exactly. But my mood and my stash are suitably enhanced!
