I thought you'd like to see the yarn I got from Finland in July. Here it is (and that's all - I didn'z go crazy this time!)
First the Schoeller+Stahl Elfin Color acrylic and mohair mix. I felt a bit silly buying German yarn in Finland, but it was in sale and I haven't seen it here, so I just took it with me. Later I found out it has been discontinued . I bought three balls, even though there were four left in the shop. I still regret not buying the last one! I think I'll be making a shawl out of this at some point.
After the Hamster month I think I got a bit carried away ordering yarn... let's see what we have here.
First the actual reason for ordering: Malabrigo lace. I'm taking part in a swap, and decided to send my partner some lace yarn. Plus I've been planning to try some lace myself, too. So two skeins for me in gorgeous green (colour Forest) and two skeins for the partner in another lovely colour!
There's no point in odering just four balls of yarn, is there? So I got some other things I liked too.
I went to Germany for Christmas. Germany is the land of sauerkraut, good beer - and sock yarn! Marvellous balls of thin, lovely variegated Regias and Lana Grossas in a broad variety of colours. Not to mention the 50 eur gift card to a LYS there... and the sale in the other LYS... so here the goodies for you. These should keep me occupied trough 2008.
