I won door prizes! It's so exciting; I was very lucky to come home from The Harlot Happening with just wonderful things! Profuse thanks to the very generous anonymous person/s who donated these prizes!!
I really needed the white Patonyle as I want to knit socks of a plain colour but with a fancy stitch pattern - so I may well dye this purple. The lace shawl kit is just divine - perfect 2ply blue-purple laceweight soft wool, an Addi Circular needle (bamboo), and the pattern for Eunny Jang's Print O'The Wave Stole.
Spidey actually won A Gathering of Lace, but she already has a copy, so we effected a (very generous) deal. Dotter and I are over the moon, thank you Spidey, and both happily planning new projects.
And I have been remiss - my hubby bought this for me when he drove up to Sydney a few weeks ago - he stopped at The Australian Alpaca Centre in Berrima, and called me to check what would be good (isn't he well trained?!)... so I have 2 balls of a deep burgundy (the colour's a little pink in the photo) 100% Australian Coolaroo Alpaca. It's actually produced by The Australian Alpaca Centre, too. Enough for ... hmmmm ... a beret?
