The Dale Tiur and the Gems Pearl were purchased to make Eliz I since what I owned in my stash and had swatched weren't working out. The Gems is still too light, but the Tiur is IT! Love the colorway too - a v deep red, almost magenta. I'll get pics of my swatches when I finish unpacking and figure out where they went.
The green peeking in the corner was purchased to knit into a bag to felt (ok, I know, I don't felt...but there are exceptions to every rule, and I had all the rest of that Classic Elite Le Gran mohair that had been ripped out of the silk garden heavy sweater.) It has already been knit - at above 30000 ft I might add: This was my airport and flight knitting. Whole thing was cast on, knit and bound off while in transit on this last trip. Used all the Le Gran too - have just a little bit (showing there at the top) - hope it's enough to knit the embellishment flowers. Now I just have to find a washer to felt in, or figure out how to use a front loader to felt.
I also purchased this sale yarn - the wildflower DK has been discontinued, and as I've seen it knit by several from my Wed Night knitting group into baby/kids knits, I thought I'd better have some...and the classic elite was just too pretty to leave there....
do we wonder why my stash looks like it does?
oh, and I managed to purchase some yarn on the way out of Wilmington - on the way to the airport. What? you want to see that too? later alligator
