I got my yarn from little knits today! Here it is... isn't it beautiful? The Misti Alpaca Lace is for my Lotus Blossom Shawl, it's going to be beautiful and the yarn only cost 11 dollars total! The Cascade 220 is for my Urban Necessity Mittens/Gloves, again very reasonably priced (around 11 dollars as well I believe). I'm telling you this in case my sister is reading and is going to yell at me for spending too much money on yarn. The Fleece Artist is going to be my last sock yarn purchase for a very long time as I have enough sock yarn to knit 22 pairs of socks. I'm not allowed to think about buying more sock yarn until I get this number down to 15. The blue yarn is new yarn from Schaefer called Trenna. It is a lace weight merino/silk blend and it is absolutely gorgeous! I am going to make a peacock shawl (from Fiddlesticks Knitting) out of this. I've had my eye on the Peacock Shawl ever since I started knitting lace. First I am starting the Lotus Blossom shawl, can't wait to start!
