I actually did a decent amount of knitting this weekend so I'm back!!! But let's start with something really fun... I made my first purchase during the yarn diet and the occasion was the release of the new KnitPicks Felici colors! I might have gone a little crazy. More pictures further down in the post!
This weekend I worked on two of my scarves. I'm now halfway done with my gray scarf because I've started my second hank finally! That also means that I've finally used up two skeins since the yarn diet started, that's actually a lot less than I was hoping to use up in this time but oh well.
I also did some work on my Chroma scarf. Not sure that I will get this done before its too warm to wear but you never know!
Now back to the fun part, my new yarn! Here is the KP Felici Fingering weight, I actually ordered two more skeins of Rainbow but they got left out of my box (I can't blame them, this is so much yarn it came inside what amounted to a garbage back inside of a box) so those 2 are coming now. When I called Customer Service the woman that helped me said she thought I would have enough projects to work on until the 2 skeins showed up, LOL!!!
Here is the KP Felici Sport weight, I went a little extra crazy and got the 2010 colorways that were still in stock and on sale!
I also got some Aloft which is the new Mohair/Silk Knit Picks yarn and also some KP Shimmer because I don't have a lot of lace weight yarn!
And finally, on Raverly in the Knitpicks Lovers forum a lot of people volunteer to run what they call Co-ops where we pay a little bit of money to get small samples of different lines are yarn. In this case I got samples of all the Palette colors! A few months ago I participated in one for Wool of the Andes worsted Co-op and have also signed up for one for Aloft and Swish in all weights. It seems like so so much work for the people that so nicely offer to organize these, so thank you to them!
