The time is now

I've been waiting to open my package of yarn from New Zealand. I thought I would have space when I had knit 2 jumpers, a vest and two pairs of socks. Well, I've knit a vest, two jumpers, a hat and taken a rather astonishing eleven skeins of sock wool for jumpers, shawls and, of course, socks. I've also just destashed 500 grams of yarn I didn't know what to do with. So now it's time, and the package has been opened.

Here's what was in it:

 Enough Alpaca/Merino for a jumper for Leon. In black. I think my logic was that he doesn't have any black jumpers, although I may regret choosing to knit in black, we shall see.

 Alpaca to make Cria for me
 A merino / possum blend to make a vest for Leon
 And four skeins of Knitsch sock yarn, one pair of socks for Leon and one for me
It was truly delightful to have access to so much kiwi yarn, and Cruella's in Nelson, was a wonderful shop in a fabulous town.
