I´ve spoiled myself...


Yesterday and today, two packages arrived in the mail.
I´ve gone ahead and spoiled myself, and bought some lovely almost-not-there greenish-gray Handmaiden Mini Maiden rom Knitty-Noddy. The colour is peridot and the yarn is 50% wool and 50% silk. It´s so lovely it almost makes me drool, and I have to think up a really lovely project for this yarn to showcase it!
From Get Knitted, I bought myself some Fleece Artist Goldiehair on sale (the burgundyish mohair-yarn), which is so lovely now I have to find a perfect project for it. There, I also bought some Noro Kureyon for a Rainbow Scarf, two each of #52 and #159. The pattern calls for mixing up the two colours, and now I almost regret it because they´re both so beautiful by themselves. But I´ll try! I have several more ideas for Noro-yarn anyhow, and this is a nice way of testing the colours.

Blir spennende å se hva det blir av dette garnet. Har aldri prøvd Noro selv, men har hørt mye skryt om det.

Da er so kjekt å skjemme bort seg sjølv av og til. Og så flotte ting du har skjemt deg vekk med da.

Ynskjer deg ein fin og solrik søndag.
