Its getting a bit crowded in here
This package showed up yesterday. It's Terra from Southwest Trading Company, via Stranded in Oz. I know I said I wasn't going to buy any more yarn. I actually ordered this before I said that, when we were in Adelaide last month. Its for a Grant Park Pullover jumper for Leon, and it's a wonderful bamboo / cotton blend in a really lovely colour.
I knew I could squeeze a kilogramme of sport weight yarn into the stash box. What I wasn't expecting was for the balls to be wound around a cardboard core, making the whole lot quite bulky.
I thought about rewinding every ball, and then I decided to just cram it in the stash box as it. Leon suggested that I store it somewhere else, but I'm having non of it. As long as the top of the box feels flat, that counts as closed in my book.
I guess I'll be knitting this jumper very, very soon.
