The Golden Fleece

On Saturday I had a delightful time at The Golden Fleece signing books and and helping people figure out what size of the Robin Hoodie would fit them the best. I almost left with no pictures until my Mum pointed out the beautiful display. Gunilla did a fabulous job. I've never seen all the Lit Knit garments displayed so well at the same time. Plus, Celestarium made an appearance.

I failed to leave without yarn. I had spotted this two weeks... and... well... it is a darn good yarn. Each skein is 600yds (540m) of single ply silk and I believe that the yarn is sourced from textile waste. The color way is Dark Sand and I'm planning to make an Hélène. Then there were beads. I think you all can see what happened next.

Has anyone else recently found a new-to-you yarn that you are excited about? I'd love to hear about it.

That is going to be amazing! The sweater is gorgeous.

I hope you felt very proud seeing all the designs together, and all knitted by you! They looked great together. I think I would have caved seeing that yarn too. It looks especially interesting! I recently picked up a ball of Noro Taiyo Sock. It is similarly textured I think. It's very nice, and I am going to cast on at some point... if I can stop looking at it and squishing it!

Congratulations Audry! You must be so proud to see all your beautiful work displayed at the Golden Fleece!
Thanks for sharing the Hélène pattern. It's so beautiful

I must say, those mannequins are a tad bit creepy, but the display is lavish :) Good work, friend! And the Helene pattern looks beautiful :)

My latest yarn find is Fleece Artist Wool Tweed. I just knit myself some fingerless mitts with it and now I'm wishing I'd bought a sweater's worth... I may have to order some more.

Helene is a gorgeous pattern. I can't wait to see your version!
