I destashed some yarn on Ravelry last month and I’m down to just the things I like. Yarn clubs are not for me, and the impulse purchases are gone now. I picked up a few interesting things in their place:


Lovesticks BFL fingering yarn in Redwood. I have too much green sock yarn, so I’m branching out a little. This is darker than I was expecting but nicely shaded, and it feels soft and tightly spun. I love the feel of BFL, but it’s not all that common a yarn.

4oz of black Shetland locks from The Flying Ewe. There’s vegetable matter still in it, but I think it will be fun to spin. Wool locks are as close as I want to get to a raw fleece, someone else can take care of the skirting and washing part. I have a dog slicker brush acting as a flick carder to open up the locks.

Lime and Violet Mermaid yarn in Desert Cactus. Snagged this in a Loopy Ewe Sneak Up, and it was flagged "Popular item right now" when I checked out, it was all gone in a couple of days. The yarn is an 80/20 wool and nylon blend that feels squishy, not stringy, and it’s not my usual colours. Something about the orange and dark pink pulled me in.
