November's "Cabernet" Spoiler

This is the next fun part of the month where I show a spoiler on the blog! If you haven't received your yarn yet, please don't click unless you want to see the yarns up close and personal. This yarn was just as heavenly to dye as it was to pet until I had to dye it. Ahhhhhhhh, cashmere....and the silk addition sure makes it glow too. I really tossed and turned on how to dye the yarn and what colour but something in the red wine colours seemed and yarn seemed quite sumptuous! And I think I named the colourway "Cabarnet" but I really meant the wine "Cabernet"...LOL Oh well, it's surely a unique name :)

If you're on Ravelry, don't forget to click on over and join the group there too. I'm looking forward to everyone's posts as your projects unfold.

Off they go...

This is the fun part of the month where I show you a picture that doesn't really tell you's just meant to tease a little and to tell you the yarns are in the mail...LOL The colourway name is Cabernet if that helps you to guess what the real colour is of the yarns! I'll be impressed with anyone who knits socks with these yarns - I think I'd just set this on my desk and pet it forever - it's that soft!

If you haven't worked with these yarns before (I won't say what it is but it'll be obvious when you get your packages LOL) don't be surprised by the size of the skein - that's the wonderous properties of this fiber - it's oh-so-light and lightness means a smaller skein. Have I given it away yet? LOL

I hope you all enjoy this month's yarn and I can't wait to see what everyone does with the yarns.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the USA and for everyone else, have a great weekend...see you when you get your yarns :)

It's a good day...

For dyeing yarn for everyone!! It's sunny outside and the weather isn't too bad and I'm in the dye pot as we speak. I am pleased with the colour coming out and the yarn is shiny! Yes, it's a silk blend for the first round!

Hope everyone's having a great weekend!

Here we go...

Woohoo, registrations are now closed for this 3-month round and I'm off to order the first batch of yarn...only 12 days until the first shipment comes out! Can you believe it? Time surely flies! Stay tuned...

UPDATE: I talked to my yarn supplier and she doesn't have enough of the cashmere in stock for the first shipment, however, I have another fabulous yarn coming that'll be oh-so-nice and the 100% cashmere will be for the second month! We will get our Mongolian cashmere but not until December...can everyone hang on until then?? It'll be our Christmas yarn...ahhhhhhhh... :)
