Stash - the souvenirs.

I wound up getting some yarn while in the US this winter. I was intending NOT to buy any yarn. Or much of anything at all. But the yarndragon could not resist adding to the hoard..

I have been asked for pictures of what I got, so here goes. 

This is 40% merino, 40% silk, and 20% bamboo. I suspect it will be something I can wear close to my skin without any itching. Will be interesting to see... This is something I started on in FL, the plan is that it will become a snood. Unfortunately the shiny softness of this yarn does not show on a picture...

The thought has always been entrelac tam with this. I love the colourway.
But it  would also look good as lace I think... oh the decisions.

The label is MIA, but it is the same brand as the blue silky softness.
The colours are darker IRL, another one I see as a hat. 

Malabrigo Lace, colour Snow Bird. 

Malabrigo Silky Merino.
Another happy colourway that I haven't the faintest idea what to do with... 
Berrocco. Irresistible colours, yet again.

I have to stop buying these novelty yarns with mixed colours, since I can never figure out what to do with them.
I only actually use the ones with one single colour, it seems.
But it does turn into an attractive yarn museum...

  2. Ikke lekt med de för, de er litt vanskelige å finne her. Silky Merino finner jeg ikke i det hele tatt, lace finnes i endel farger og sock i et par farger (men til hiskelige priser sammenligna med hva jeg betalte).

    Det ble, foruten den pågående blå halsen, Berocco-garnet som ble först ut! Begynte på et sjal i formiddags. Det går ganske radig enn så lenge, tross plastpinner (vet ikke hvor 5mm tre-pinnene er - antagelig fast i ett ufo..), så skrudde på akrylpinnene istedet).
