Rumpie must be living in Canada under the pseudonym, Hand Maiden. I have solid evidence that silk, kid mohair and nylon have been spun into pure gold:
This yarn is gorgeous beyond belief, and I had to have it — hock the kids, get a fourth mortgage, do whatever it takes, Baby! You are mine, all mine!! I bought it from StephenBe’s Yarn Garage Booth at The Knit and Crochet Show at the Hyatt in Minneapolis. I did not sign up for classes but shopped and took in the fashion show.
The yarn is called Maiden Hair, 67% silk, 23% kid mohair, 10% nylon, 300 m/100 g, color pumpkin (?). Is that the color name? I am also curious about how the crimp will knit up. I am thinking about making Merope’s Cowl with it, though the yardage is far greater than what is needed. Since I am not quite sure how it will knit up, it just might not work.
We also bought some deck furniture — finally! It is so nice to be able to actually use the lovely deck that my husband finished last fall. Note laptop and knitting as part of the accessorizing!
Tomorrow I start the Braided Glory Class at Amazing Threads — really excited about it. I love futzing around with technique.
My Left Foot update: I am walking without a boot! Not great at it, but walking nonetheless. Progress is being made…:)
PS: Eek. Made. Big. Mistake. Husband. Saw. Price. Of. Yarn. $42.50.
PS2: I laughed when Suzan asked if Bonnie’s husband was a skiier: mine is — cross country. The equipment is tres cher and of course he gets only the best, so we allow each other our little extravagances! My favorite hubby quote, “Keep buying yarn ’til we run out of money!” Okay, dear!! 😉
