LB Gold Leaf after stalking the projects made from this yarn. The silver grey was decent looking, but I thought that the lighter colour would look nicer. I admit, it's a bit ugly - the gold leaf is pretty gaudy, more so in person than in the photos (it actually looks pretty good in the photos).
I suspect it'll look better knit up, and I think I'm going to knit up the Vermonter, a chunky hat pattern I've been eyeing up for ages now. And I'll probably knit it up pretty soon too, because I'm curious if this yarn will look nicer in a project than in the ball.
LB Baby Alpaca with the intention to reknit a hat for a friend.
LB Merino Superwash, I decided on a bright read with the intention to knit more red accessories for next winter. I'm loving red right now for winter things - my favourite winter boots are red felted wool, my car is red, and I'm itching to knit a pretty hat from this gorgeous tonal red a friend sent me for my birthday. So maybe a pair of mitts and a matching scarf/cowl? Something fun, anyways. This yarn is quite soft and cozy, if much brighter than I expected.
LB Silk Chiffon Ribbon yarn. This stuff is a little weird, and is made up of shredded strips of chiffon.
Three-Turn cowl? It has to be a small project, because I only have one skein of this yarn. I want something simple to let the 'yarn' shine, but I don't want just plain stockinette.
I think, as of now, I am on a yarn diet. I don't actually have any more places to stash all of the astronomical amount of yarn I've acquired lately. I am working on it - I've started two projects lately that is using yarn that's been in the stash for over a year now.
Are any of you on a fabric/yarn/craft supply diet? If so, do you count prizes/giveaways/presents in that diet? I think those should be exempt, eh?
