Maryland Stash Enhancement
Here is what I got from MDS&W this weekend. Clockwise from the top back: Green and blue carded batts from Spinner's Hill - enough for a sweater, 1 pound of Shetland tops, 8 ounces of red Merino top, 4 ounces of a dark plummy/eggplant handdyed merino and tencel from Bonker's Originals, a tiny kneeling alpaca ornament, 2 ounces of hand dyed Bombyx/merino from Blue Moon (more pink than it shows in the picture), 8 ounces of a Mohair and wool blend from someplace I can't remember the name of, and in the center a Mini Bossie spindle of Bird's Eye Maple and 2 ounces of Kid Mohair and Angora roving that will probably be dyed pink or red and plyed with the bombyx merino. Can you tell I had fun?
By the way, if you look in the sidebar, you'll see a button for the Mystery Stole Along. If you click it, you can connect with the Yahoo group for the knitalong. ( I know buttons do this everyday on the Web, but this is pretty huge for me, I've never had my own button) We're doing some testing right now to make sure everyone can get files with charts in them and I think we've almost gotten it figured out. I knit much better than I do computer stuff (remember when I figured out paragraphs? That was a big day for me) and Christine, who I've never met in person, is really being a huge help with everything. She designed the button for us and has answered many of my stupid questions patiently and in small words that I can understand. Big cyberhugs to you Christine!
