YAY Finally some yarn with bamboo !!

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

Kelly advertised a pretty skein of 50% Bamboo and 50% Wool on her Facebook pageย 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ so I chose this, I don’t know what I’ll do with it yet …..

Delicious new yarn buys !!

I’ve mentioned Toomuc Valley Yarns before in this post HEREย when I bought some delicious Berry Smoothie yarn that I knitted into a cowl for myself.

Well she’s opened a gorgeous little store at Etsy !! ย Check it out HERE

Toomuc Valley Yarns had a beautiful stocking last night and I couldn’t resist some gorgeous new yarn โค I bought a few skeins for myself and one to knit up a little dress for my friend’s little girl when she’s born! I’m really looking forward to her birth, i’ve got 6 boys so you can imagine how itchy I get wanting to knit for a precious little girl.

Here are my purchases, all in DK

I bought two of these amazingly sunny yellow skeins. I might put them into my Autumn coloured throw somehow, we'll see when I get them ;)

I bought two skeins of this delightful colourway too ! I think a pullover for next winter will come out of this for either Elias or Ishaq. I've got some pretty yarn to match for a trim.

Gorgeous new delights

I have over the past couple of weeks had the delivery of a few delicious yarns. Some were updates on Facebook that I just could NOT go past so had to have them. 1 lot is a custom order from Lanie at Forest Hill Hand Dyed Yarn on Facebook who by the way NOW has her own Etsy shop ๐Ÿ˜‰ I will explain them all to you. *loves them*

The following balls of deliciousness are a custom order with Lanie. I am so much in love with them. The photo of Aqua sky doesn’t truly represent it’s beautiful colours.

I sent Lanie photo’s of gorgeous skies and Autumn leaves to recreate for me and I am so thrilled with the results !

I also bought 2 Balls each of 4ply, 8ply and 10ply in cream wool at Bendigo Woollen Mills to try and dye up myself with some natural colourings. I bought some beautiful primary colours in Natural food dyes and when the kids give me some moments I will attempt some myself. So exciting !!
