Are you knitters shocked when you go through your stashes? I was. I thought I might have two or three skeins of yarn to take to the upcoming Knit Social Yarn Swap, but I found a lot more than that.

Should be fun – and I was happy to see that Alexa from Gourmet Crafter has a table and will be selling her lovely hand-dyed yarns.

As a teaser, for the really hardcore: that bag contains quince & co, Jared Flood’s own Shelter, a few Sweetgeorgia fibre club offerings (will I ever have time to spin again?), Cascade, undyed knit picks yarn, and unique hand-dyes from various North American destinations.


It happened last weekend: lovely local llama spun up with some wool. And then I dyed it this green-turquoise colour. My dye-mixing technique definitely needs some fine-tuning – despite my careful calculations, this wasn’t actually the colour I was hoping for. Still, it may be wearable in small doses.

In my daydreams, I will knit this into plum gloves for next winter, since the arrival of real plum blossoms in Vancouver means it’s finally getting warmer.
