I WON YARN !!! wooohoooo Toomuc Valley Yarns Prize =D

Today I was blown away by winning some gorgeous yarn from one of my very favourite stores Toomuc Valley Yarns.

You can see what delights she sells in her store here http://toomucvalleyyarns.com/

I won FOUR SKEINS !! can you believe !! that’s just BEYOND generous :O  I’m still so very surprised and omg excited hahahaha

I chose these ones 😛

This one is Just a Wish Away. It’s a gorgeously divine mix of NZ Kid Mohair Blend. 85% Kid Mohair and 15% Merino and it’s 3PLY !! I’ve never felt a 3 ply before and I can’t wait. I’ve got just the most perfect project in mind. Though I’m worried my big clumsy man hands won’t be able to use it hehe it is 100g and about 530m. WOW that’s LONG !

This one is called Mum’s Apple Pie! YUM YUM !! I can see a gorgeous little cardi for my little Ali with this delicious skein. It is a DK weight yarn and 100g of New Zealand MW wool.

This delightful skein which i’m sure is going to make me SWOON with pleasure with it’s softness is called Peachy Keen. Now…. I’m being VERY selfish with this one. I have a friend that has a sweet little baby named Sabrina that would look so gorgeous in this but then it might make myself a beautiful little thing for ME ME ME …. we’ll see 😉 it is 100g’s of omg 50% Bamboo and 50% wool !! imagine the smooshyness ❤ *sigh*

My final skein is Cool Caribbean. This one DOES have Sabrina’s name on it. Her mama doesn’t like the pinky girly traditional colours that I’d LOVE LOVE to knit for her so I think this is a very nice compromise. I think it’ll make a wonderful in three’s cardi for her 😉 it’s a worsted weight wool so it’s just perfect AND I have the most delightful little buttons to match !!

YAY Finally some yarn with bamboo !!

Once again I am buying some lusciousness from Kelly Casanova. See her gorgeous etsy store HERE 

Kelly advertised a pretty skein of 50% Bamboo and 50% Wool on her Facebook page at a great price so I thought I would pick it up to knit something for my friend’s babe. I can almost feel the squishyness of the bamboo and wool combination already!

oh I love you my friend BAMBOO !!

oh I love you my friend BAMBOO !!

To go with this Kelly offered me another skein at a good price from her store to make the postage worth it. *snickers* it’s ALWAYS worth it for yarn 😉 so I chose this, I don’t know what I’ll do with it yet …..
