Fiberholics Anonymous

Dear Mom,
In her post titled "Hello My Name is Christine and I am a Fiber Fanatic" , Christine writes about the fiber she had blended and spun from her sheep and alpaca. It is beautiful. It haunted me. 

I stalked Christine, offering to take some of that fiber off her hands if she would be willing to part with just a little bit. 

She was. ( or I bugged her enough that she sold me a cone just to shut me up)

Last week my cone of yarn arrived. This is a 70/30 blend of Blanche and Sammy. (wool and alpaca)
It is absolutely beautiful and I have special plans for this yarn. In the meantime, I am keeping close while I daydream about what it will be someday and to admire it. 

To me, this is as pretty as a bouquet of flowers.

See how pretty it is outside with the crocuses?

For inspiration, it watches Downton Abbey with me.

It hopes to be a pretty lace stole someday......

LOL, you're a nut. I am a card carrying member, that is for sure. Yesterday, I went to a quilt show and guess what I bought? Yarn! Then, when touring the history center, I spent more time studying the woven rugs on the floor than the exibits. They probably thought I was crazy taking pictures of the floor. LOL

OMG...I am laughing so much! I totally get how a cone of yarn can watch Downton Abbey with you! That is beautiful stuff! And we'd better see the process of that lace stole!

This is so funny!! I have yarn in my stash I'm hesitant to use because it's too pretty. I'm betting that you can get 2 or more shawls from that cone. It looks pretty big.

I love the brown yarn. Looks like you have enough to knit a shawl for all of us! Brown is one of m best colors. Feel free.

I love Downton Abbey, too. I plan to win their sweepstakes and visit in September. I have it marked on my calendar. Just waiting for the formality of them drawing my name.
