About yarn & Valentine's gifts

Antes digo aquello de "A Dios pongo por testigo de que no volveré a comprar más lana...", antes compro/me regalan más lana. Casi 4.000 metros más en mi alijo el mes de febrero. En fin. La cabeza me bulle con ideas para todas ellas y las manos me pican de ganas que tengo de comenzar nuevos proyectos. :-)

A los diez ovillos acrílicos color beige que trajo mi madre a casa para una nueva manta hay que añadir las compras de las rebajas. Les quedaban lanas en tonos naranja-marrón y azul-gris. Escogí el naranja, claro. Fui buena chica y sólo pedí dos ovillos (uno para cada pie). Claro que si hubieran tenido otros colores para elegir quizás no hubiese sido tan buena chica. ;-)

Pero es que además a esto hay que sumarle el regalo de mi san Valentín sureño particular: cinco maravillosos ovillos de fina alpaca que ya tienen asignado un proyecto (cruzando los dedos para que no me falte ni un metro porque está descatalogada) acompañados de un botecito de bálsamo labial casero y una cruz hecha con madera de olivo de Tierra Santa. ¡Gracias, Libby! ♥

Ahora... ¡a tejer!

Peruvian Pure Alpaca Fina
St Valentine's from crafter to crafter

The sooner I say "As God is my witness I will not buy more yarn...", the sooner I buy/someone gives me more yarn. More than 4000 yards were added to my stash in February. Oh well. My head is buzzing with some ideas for all of them and my hands are burning because I can't wait to start working on new projects! :-)

To those ten beige acrylic skeins mum brought home to make a new blanket we need to add the sales purchase. The remaining skeins were in orange-brown and blue-grey shades. I chose orange, of course. I was a good girl and only bought two skeins (one for each foot). Had there been more colours to choose I wouldn't have played the good girl, I am afraid. ;-)

But there is more! I received this gift from my Southern St. Valentine's: five wonderful skeins of fine alpaca that have been already assigned to a project (crossing my fingers that I am not needing an extra yard because this yarn has been discontinued) that came together with a homemade lip balm and a cross made with olive wood from the Holy City. Thank you, dear Libby! ♥

Knitting time!

p.s. ¡Os recuerdo que podéis seguir haciendo vuestros tapetes y enviarlos a Sonieta para el Proyecto M hasta el 23 de marzo!

  3. Ha, I think vowing not to buy yarn must be the sure way to get more. ;) Those alpaca skeins from Libby are really beautiful, and I bet they are very soft. Orange is a favorite color of mine, too. I was just thinking earlier about all the orange things I have including a big orange purse. O.O It's really big, lol. I'm looking forward to seeing your orange socks. Have a great week!

    1. I think you're right. Not that I am complaining about it! I couldn't be happier. ;-)
      The alpaca skeins are really soft, can't wait to pick up my thin needles again and work with them. If only I had four hands to knit the socks at the same time! So many things to do that I don't know where to start first. :-)
      Have a great week in the foothills!

  4. Just know that there are almost 2 full skeins of that yarn remaining in my home...just in case. :-)

    May your fingers have fun running through the yarns for all your new projects. xoxo
