Bendigo Sheep & Wool Part Two: The Loot
From Wendy Dennis - Some charcoal handspun hand dyed corriedale fingering weight, some purple 8ply (DK) , and some purple/grey 8ply. I have no idea what I will do with any of these yet, beyond gloating.
From the famous Bendigo Woollen Mills - 12 balls of grey pure wool 2ply. Yum. And only $2AUD a ball!
I cannot for the life of me remember the producer of this yarn - it is hand dyed, and I bought it purely because the colours were soso pretty - purples, greys and yellows.
Bendigo Woollen Mills again - around 800g of cream coloured alpaca for nefarious dyeing experiments. Mwahahaha.
600g of charcoal coloured 8ply from the Woollen Mills - I'm planning a vest with this!
600g Bendigo Woollen Mills 5ply (sportweight?) in a heathery purple - vest again!
And last but oh in no way least - luscious luscious goodness from Firbreworks - alas, they have no website yet. Oooooh, the colours these people produce! The skein on the left is 100g of greens in 3ply, the centre skein is 200g of blacks/teals fingering weight, and the skein on the right is 200g of blues and greens.... these were NOT cheap but boyohboy were they worth it! I bought the centre skein as soon as I spotted it, then forced myself to walk away and think about the rest of it. I was back less than five minutes later for the other two. The lovely ladies at the stall laughed understandingly. Or pityingly. Perhaps both.
I also bought two knitting books, but photos will have to wait, as my camera battery is sulking.
