Stash enhancement

It’s been a while since I ordered yarn in a Loopy Ewe Sneak Up. Got the email on Monday just as I’d made my 2000 words on the novel and was shutting the machine down.

Belamoden and GypsyKnits yarn.

bellamoden in The Colour Purple (merino sport weight) and Gypsy Knits in Elves ‘n Gnomes (BFL fingering weight). The bellamoden is a deliciously squishy sport weight, can’t wait to see how it knits up. It is destined to be the next pair of comfort socks (where you come home after a lousy day and want to put on something to feel better). The Gypsy Knits is hard to photo but the colour is growing on me. It is mostly greenish with splashes of pinkish red and a hint of brown. I’m thinking a cable pattern for this.

I’d been waiting for the Gypsy Knits and I was planning to just get that, but the bellamoden was such a nice purple and Hubby said I could get more… I love my hubby!

There has been very little knitting through November. The novel demanded time and energy, and something had to go. I have just over half of the Silky Wool neck cozy done and I’m looking forward to making something else.


  1. Hi Alison, Hope you are well, I am coming home to the states on Wed for Christmas and just randomly thought, I wonder if Alison would like anything from England – I would pack a bacon butty but , it might not pass through customs. I am feeling really normal in England – it’s rather appaling. If you would like anything, please email me in the next day or so so I can find your requested items. hope to see you in St. Louis:) xxx
