I was excitedly working away on my Little Fishies Panel Scarf, and I was nearly done I might add, when I decided I needed to make some changes. So I gently un-knit (I know there are other words for this..I just prefer to say un-knit.) the entire thing and I ended up with this beautiful bowl of yarn waiting to be re-knit into my project. I thought, how cool would it be to go to a potluck where the dish to pass everyone brought was a lovely bowl of bundled lengths of ribbon, silks, bamboo, mohair, alpaca and hand dyed wool. Can you imagine a table full of these bowls, and you could go around and choose a certain amount, then everyone could happily sit down and work on a project! You might need to trade as you went along and saw how things were going. To me, this sounds like knitter's paradise! I just thought I'd pass this idea along to my knitting friends...in case you want to give it a try,the Knitter's Potluck.
I received my wonderful swap envelope from Shelley V. this week! Look at all the fun goodies she sent along! I absolutely loved everything all my favorite colors, just perfect! Thanks Shelley for a great envelope!!!
I plied the rest of the yarn which I'm calling Cozy Pink Dreams, I did a test ply earlier having learned my lesson from the first skein of this blend (plied to itself..it looked like worm guts, teehee) One single is a blend of natural romney/kid mohair/tussah silk, the other single is merino/alpaca. I was able to get a total of 429 yards (60yds sm skein, 369yds lg skein) The ypi is 15. I haven't any plans for the yarn yet, it's going into the yarn stash for now until the right project comes along.
Have a great week, Blessings Friends!
