After not buying yarn for nine months I went to the Handknitters fair and really, really bought yarn! As planned, I visited Little Dipper Yarns and bought some sock yarn for Leon. I know that Ursula dyes amazing "boy colours", so I thought I was being conservative "only" buying five skiens for him. A lovely aqua for me also snuck into my purchases.
I also found Dyed by Hand yarns. Julie, who was running the stall is such a nice person. She is my second favorite dyer and I initially bought one skein of lovely blue/green from her. The, I noticed a khaki / green / yellow skein, which she says knits up a bit like cammo. Since I am obsessed with camouflage prints right now, that came home with me too.
I also ordered 300 grams of sock weight yarn to pick up in Bendigo for the Apres Surf Hoodie
, which I have been planning to make for what feels like an age.
So, I bought eight skeins of yarn, totaling 3074 meters of yarn. My entire stash is now at 26352 meters - I'd really like to see it back below 24 kilometers prior to Bendigo, where I plan to shop lightly, although we all know how those plans can go.
