Well, there's not been n awful lot of knitting or crocheting going on chez Snoops' this last week or two. It's been mega busy, both at school and at home. But, I must drop by to show you some scrummy new yarns that have come my way.
First up is the November instalment of Knitspot's 'Purple Passion Club'. It's a gorgeous 4ply sock yarn; a 75% Corriedale and 25% nylon mix. Such gorgeous colours!
Much of the home busy....ness of the last couple of weeks, has been down to the younger `Miss Snoops arriving back home after working and travelling abroad for the last nine months. It's really good to have back in the UK. After a week at home, she has now relocated back to London, where she is based.
She brought me two lovely skeins of New Zealand reared and dyed yarn. Above and below are photos of the gorgeous 4ply merino. I love the colour mix!
Then there is this little beauty; a mix of merino and possum. This yarn never looks amazing until it has been worked and then washed. A magical transformation then takes place as it just blooms! I can't wait to use it. It will probably become a warm and cosy cowl!
I have had a few quite moments when I've picked up my needles or hook, so hopefully there will be a finished and edged Seaside Blanket to show you next time and maybe a pair of completed 'Mind the Gap' socks for the elder Miss Snoops. Fingers crossed!
