A few things this morning . . .

First, here are the new yarns that I listed yesterday! Click on the pictures to take you to the etsy listing, or you can check them out at KittyGrrlz.Com

Inconsistent Spring Hand Spun Single Ply Yarn - this one was spun from nice and soft Falkland wool hand dyed by the Yarn Wench, color called "Bower". It ended up a little less consistent than I like, even for a thick/thin single, so it varies between DK and Worsted weight. 150 yards.

Pretty Purple Pansies - spun from a pretty batt from TerraBellaSpun - this one has merino, superwash, wool, bamboo, gold sparkle, and white glitz and then is plied with light purple thread. 78 bulky yards.

And, then there is Woodland Royalty - an earthy skein in browns with gorgeous deep purple and plied with dark purple thread. This one is spun from another TerraBellaSpun batt made up of wool, mohair, bamboo, sparkle, and Tussah Silk. 66 bulky yards.
Second . . . I was on the front page earlier this week, overnight, with my Plum Grove revisited yarn. And, then, I was on AGAIN last night with the same yarn, but this time it sold!! I was so excited since this is the first time that has happened! Woohoo! Here is a screenshot of the treasury (and i'm sorry i couldn't get the entire thing - i don't have a big monitor!) Thank you to crafthabit for creating such a beautiful treasury and for including me in it!

Also, for anyone who may be interested in the Plum Grove yarn but missed out on it - I do have 4 more oz of fiber that could be spun into a similar yarn. I am running out of some of the yarns I spin into it, but could spin two more skeins in this color combination. Just email me or convo me on etsy for details!

Finally, no Lego Star Wars last night as I was a little slow in getting my "work" done - but, I will have two skeins of a pretty shades-of-green-and-yellow-and-gold posted later today - here is a sneak peek:

Have a great Thursday everyone!!

Those are really beautiful yarns! I want to buy them and I don't even knit anymore. Maybe I could hang them on my wall like art. lol.
