The stuff dreams are made of...
This yarn just jumped into my hands the other day and said "Pet me!" It's sinfully soft, hand-painted, 100% alpaca. The colors are even better in person. I had to bring it home, didn't I? I haven't put it away with the rest of the stash because I'm still admiring it.
And then there is this project...spinning a laceweight yarn. Like this blog, that's another thing that I thought I could admire other people doing with no plan to actually do myself. This fibery goodness is a blend of Cotswold lamb and alpaca called "Brown Sugar" from Nistock Farms.
What is to become of these two wonders? Well, we'll just have to wait and see, won't we?
