Knitting progress ...

This has grown a bit since you last saw it. Now bordering on too big to fit into the camera view; may have to stand on a chair in future. Or put it on the floor (which means vacuuming thoroughly first 'cause I shed more than any pet ever did and last thing I need to be doing is getting my hair out of this). Grey stripes alternating getting lighter/darker is now very visible and the colourful side continues through its own version of the rainbow.

New squishies!!! Plus playing with brioche

In my mailbox tonight: gorgeous handspuns (and extras) from Black Sheep Goods

And playing around with patterned yarns and brioche knitting. The grey side will be striped, starting with alternating medium greys; the stripes alternate getting lighter or darker until the final pair are very pale, almost white, and charcoal. The side that's currently blues and greens is going to progress to yellows, oranges, pinks, purples and back to blues.

Loot!

From today's Calgary Spring Fibre Festival! All locally dyed, hand painted and/or spun. Top L-R: Two skeins of Red Neck Goat Ranch Hand Painted 100% Wool and two skeins of Cloud 9 Fiberworks Cirrostratus Worsted (100% SK Dorset Wool) in "That Old Chestnut" and "Toil and Trouble" colourways. Bottom L-R: One skein Red Fox Fibres Blackstone DK (100% Merino) in "All Dyed Up & No Place To Go" colourway (which is a darker teal than it appears in the photo, bought this as a contrast to the orange, yellow & brown skeins I bought from them at the Fibre Shindig earlier this year), one skein Nomad Fibreworks Handspun (Merino Wool/Blue Face Leicester Wool/Corriedale Wool/Silk/"etc.") named "Campfire" (bought this from the Alberta Yarn Project booth and the folk there told me this skein had actually been spun by the Jenn the Fibre Goddess … figures that I would be attracted to her yarns even when they're in disguise), and three skeins of Over The Moon Yarn Sub Atomic DK in "Mars Rover" colourway.
