Maybe a few stash enhancements…

Ok, so maybe more than a few.

It’s been a good month for additions to the stash, and it all began with some Music related goodies from Felt Fusion.

This was created taking inspiration from my favourite music videos, Animal on the left (based upon Animal Nitrate by Suede) is sw merino/nylon sport weight, and Priceless Advice on the right (based upon Heart Shaped Box by Nirvana) is high twist merino/nylon sock weight. The box also included some lovely music related extras.

 

Next there was a Zombie attack…

20160331_152102[1]This was The Walking Dead yarn box, as part of the Netflix night in series by The captain and lovely. A gorgeous Merino DK yarn, that has already been worked up into the Whitefish Ripples cowl by Faye Kennington.

Then it was local yarn shop day, organised by the magazine Lets Knit. I went along to my LYS, Sitting Knitting in Sutton Coldfield. Here some very squishy Malabrigo Lace weight yarn fell into my shopping basket and just had to be purchased. Added to that was some lovely merino/nylon sock yarn in the Dyed and gone to heaven colourway that was hand dyed by the shop owners son, James. This was being sold as part of his fund raising towards his world challenge trip to India next year.

I have a slight obsession with all things related to Buffy The Vampire Slayer, so when Truly Hooked announced a Buffy yarn box I just had to get it.

Lovely Merino/nylon sock yarn called The Slayer, with such cute extras, including some very cute little button magnets and a really awesome project bag based upon one of my favourite episodes Once more with feeling.

 

Another love of mine is Alice in Wonderland, this box was another by Felt Fusion

Contrariwise (on the left) is a springy sw merino DK yarn, and Curious Croquet (on the right) is a sw BFL DK.

 

This awesome mix of greens and purples is called Some Absinthed Evening, it’s a sw Merino/nylon/stellina mix sock weight yarn and is so so sparkly. This was from the lovely Thorndolly Yarn.

Last but not least………

Fraggle Rock Yarn box!

As you may know if you follow me on social media, my children are often referred to as The Fraggles, so when Lollipop Guild Yarns announced a Fraggle Rock mystery box it just had to be done. It is another sw merino/nylon sock weight the colourway is Dance your cares away, and I apologise now if you have an earworm, I’ve had the theme tune stuck in my head for days now.

 

So…. all in all it’s safe to say I may be on a slight yarn diet for the next few weeks. We’ll see how long it lasts.
