Yesterday was my birthday! :)
As a treat to myself, I indulged in some purchases. Firstly, my LYS just got in some Kauni last week. (JOY!!!) So I snarfled some. It was really hard to decide, but I settled on this:
I also picked up this - it's not really a splurge, because its purpose is to be part of a sample piece I'll be submitting to a magazine, so technically it's a business purchase. But hey, it always feels lovely and decadent to buy more yarn:
It's "On Your Toes Bamboo" from S. R. Kertzer, in a coral/salmon sort of colour.
Then there were the gifties!
Firstly, my husband could hardly fail to notice that I was going on and on about Kauni lately, so he got me some more, happily in one of the colourways that I was seriously considering when I bought the other one:
And my daughters gave me this:
That's "Silky Alpaca Lace", from Classic Elite Yarns, and I have no idea what I'm going to do with it yet, but it's verrah nice. :)
