Enhancing the stash with O-Wool

O-wool has such an amazing story that I cannot find words to do it justice in this post. Their website describes it beautifully.

This certified organic merino DK weight, comes in 130 yards per skein in an array of beautiful colors. I enhanced my stash with four skeins in the color way "Rutabaga". Most likely they will become a "Campfire" shawl in the future.

Do you have any yarn crush that I need to know about? My wish is to discover as many wonderful yarns as my pocket can afford.

She should not know...

This hat is perfect for my five year old daughter. Please don't tell her that was totally unintentional and that she is really getting it because is too small for me.

Dreiecke was designed by Shannon Cook of Very Shannon. I have been following Shannon's blog for a long time. Her transformation from blogger to knitting and sewing designer, author and entrepreneur is admirable.

My modifications:

Read carefully if you want to knit a kids hat. Ignore in any other circumstance. 
  • I did not check my gauge 
  • I casted on ten more stitches than recommended to compensate knitting with DK instead of worsted weight yarn. The arbitrary number of stitches just seemed right. 
I would love to knit this pattern again. Next time, hopefully, for me.

My dear handspun yarn

I cannot stop admiring the colors of my latest handspun yarn out of Spun Right Round fiber.

Renee Hahnel, from Spun Right Round, has an incredible talent and eye for color. It is dangerous to "check out" her store. You will end up enhancing the stash--needed or not. Unless you are not human. And, if that is the case, this may not be your kind of blog.

The bundle of joy is a three ply, sports weight Merino in color way "Glow Sticks", 374 yards. Not my most even handspun yarn...but, I am crazy in love with it as is.  It will sit in my stash until I find the perfect pattern or get tired of petting it--whatever comes first.
