Seven Days

Seven Days since the last, seven days until the next, but the first official one for....The Ring. Dun dun dun! Heh. It's not all that evil and mysterious and freaky as the movie. Just a way for those of us with a fiber obsession to share with others the wonder that is wool and cotton and rayon and mohair and and and, well, you get it. Today, I bring you the swag from the Cherry Tree Hill Grab Bag that I got a couple weeks ago. I went for the "Blue and Greens" option for wools, and I'm mighty happy with what I got. First, is some Twister: Sept 6 Update 001 Sept 6 Update 005 I have no idea what to do with it yet, but whatever I do with it, I can't wait to see how it knits up. And the yardage is generous. Next is some Superwash Possum Worsted. I got 2 hanks of Teal and 1 of Bluestone. This photographed better. Cherry Tree Hill Possum Worsted It's superwash, and I can see it as wristwarmers or a scarf or I dunno. Something. Maybe a small shrug like the one skein wonder? I just purchased that yesterday. I did get one other hank of a lil somethin' somethin'. And as a teaser to the birthday girl on Sunday, here's a shot, with Ripple standing guard. Sept 6 Update 020 Pam knows about this project, so that's why I'm sharing it. I don't have the ball band on hand so I can't tell you what the yarn is, but I can tell you that every time I knit with it my hands look like I strangled a member of the blue man group, while wearing cheap jewelry. So, Happy Birthday to you, Pam, and you'll get your fuzzy feet next week. Now, go surf the ring and see what the other members have come up with.

HEE! I'm getting REALLY PRETTY Fuzzy Feet!!! Yay!

Nice stuff overall, too - I might have to look into that whole grab bag thing... Because, you know, I need more yarn.

Said it once, will say it again. It's the first time I've seen anyone get a green thumb from knitting! :D

Yay!

I put up my pics today....but unfortunately they aren't as scrummy as I hoped. Dang early winter is screwing with my fiber pr0n aspirations!

Ah well, serves me right to wait til the day before to get the pics, when i shoulda taken the yarn out to the early light the other day when it was there!

Nice fuzzy feet too!

I love that CTH yarn. It will be interesting to see how it knits up!

BTW, I love possum yarn--I have a ton of Furlana--it satisfies some inner varmint recycler in me. Sick, yes, but the yarn is lovely.
