British Blue

The unpacking continues. Late yesterday afternoon Ms. FedEx brought in a huge box from England. The box weighed more than she did.

We have a new yarn from Erika Knight
home grown luxury 
british blue 100 is 100% Bluefaced Leicester wool in 100g hanks. 
Supremely soft, subtly sheeny and deliciously sumptuous; the wool of the Bluefaced Leicester is Britain’s most luxurious fibre. 
With its fine, dense yet lightweight fleece, due to the nature of its tightly purled wool, the noble Bluefaced Leicester produces some of the finest commercial demo-lustre wool in the world. Often considered the “cashmere of British wools”, it it naturally my fibre of choice for creating the best of British wool yarns. 
Wool is naturally soft, comfortable and sustainable, making it the ultimate fibre for the hand knitter.

I came to work yesterday morning and saw that I had a visitor in my garden. The deer are back and had a good meal on my plants.

Remember the unpacking?

Mr. UPS just brought in a box from Rowan. Unfortunately Rowan Magazine #62 wasn't in the box. The fall launch is August 15 and we hope the book will be in stock that day. I've heard rumour that Rowan will be debuting a new website that day as well.

Ms. Canada Post brought us a box of patterns from Churchmouse Yarns. I love their patterns. Here's a little secret. There will be brand new patterns at the end of the month.
