Am working with a hand painted yarn... almost fingering weight... merino wool by Koigu... Love it! Love the fine stitches.
I recieved the package from William with the Ball Winder and to my surprise there was and enormous amount of beautiful yarn included.
I love Cascade 220 yarn. So many beautiful, rich, saturated colors to choose from. As my stash growns, so does the challenge of selecting combinations of colors for future projects.
Thanks to Spinningdude's link to the miniature sweaters video, I fell so much in love with the whole Coraline thing.
I've been knitting a Faire Isle sweater in twelve colors...used the wrap, wrap, unwrap technique to avoid all the issues of snagging yarn on the reverse side. Coming along beautifully.

I checked my email tonight and to my joy I found out I was the winner of the ball winder raffled by William. It was such a surprise. I can't wait to get it.
I designed this back in December - though of course I haven't even cast on yet.
Its nearly all acrylic DK! He doesn't really know what he's doing when if comes to fibre... but it was a sweet thought. He is a theatre designer and the wardrobe were going to throw it all away.
My partner has just finished the first section of the Unst Lace Shawl, a 38 row with 10 repeats pattern in cobweb cashmere knitted on 2.25mm.
