I have some new yarn!!! With my parents visit came a delicious new yarn that my mother picked up for me at the Plaza Arts Fair in Kansas City, MO.
It is from Lost City Knits, colorway Winter Hike (go to their website and check out the yarn, they have a much better picture of the color). It is a Llama Bamboo Lace yarn with 80% llama and 20% bamboo make up. (The label says that the llama's Name is Angelique! - I love it). After looking into Lost City Knits a little more, I have found that it is based in Oklahoma and the skeins that my mother purchased are part of their Oklahoma Fiber Partnership where they partner with other local farms that have fibers that they don't have to create some wonderful blends - such as their Llama Bamboo Lace yarn that is now living in my stash! I love the fiber community.
With the yarn came a pattern for a lovely shawl. So, look for updates on the progress of that. I have some Christmas projects that need to get done first, but then I will get started.
Even Harold likes the yarn.
I have never knit with Llama before, so I am excited to work with the material. Which makes me think that next weeks Woolly Wednesday will be dedicated to Llama and like fibers.
