sometimes, it's just necessary to make exagerated use of capitals and exclamation points. like when you open your mail box to find a package full of impossibly wonderful goodies that you'd never dreamed you'd get your greedy little hands on, let alone as a gift. my gift elf sent me a skein of Noro silk garden and recycled sari, so i could finally see what they really looked and felt like, (have i mentioned i go absolutely apesh$% for variegated colour?) and some lovely fibres for me to try spinning. look ma! it's real silk! and cashmere too! it's so nice n soft, i'm almost afraid to try, lest i mess it up entirely, but i swear that once i've practiced with regular wool a bit more i'll get up the nerve to try spinning some nice fine yarn out of it. and i have a great big fluffball of kid mohair to play with too! fuzzy yarn! woohoo!
i haven't decided what to do with my sari yarn yet, but my noro has already been transformed into a lovely scarf. i wasn't sure if one skein would be enough, but i found a stitch pattern with lots of yarn overs to make it stretch a bit further and ended up with a really nice just-long-enough scarf that i can wear with just about everything. i'll post the pic and pattern tomorrow.
