Yes, I'm happy. What a day! And I just got out of bed! This is what I found in the mail today, from lovely Colourmart. A whole cone of 100% pure cashmere, in a khaki color. I love it. I can't wait to knit it. But the annoying part about luxury yarn is that I never find the perfect project. I just save it for ages, until it isn't that special to me anymore. I'm not going to do that this time. My original plan was to knit these mittens. I've ordered a fingering weight yarn, but I think it's thinner than that. It isn't twisted that hard, so it might be ok to knit it double. Oh, I can't wait!
I also ordered this little piece of paper, with tiny skeins taped to it. Why doesn't all yarn stores do this? I can really feel the different qualities, and see how thick they are. All samples are cashmere, if not other is mentioned. There's some camel, silk, merino and mohair too. I love the blue/purple heavy lace, and I want it now.
I even got a ball of merino, as a gift. It's the softest merino I've ever felt. I'm not sure what there's enough yarn for.. it's great to have kids with small heads, hands and feet, isn't it?
At last, a little cute picture I took this morning... Has she got the yarn madness as well?
