Tuesday Treats

I have a little routine on my route on Tuesdays. After my mama & baby yoga class I ride my bike to a yarn shop in that area. Often just for eye candy, but sometimes I leave the shop with some treats (my Lace Citron and the Lanesplitters resulted mostly from these Tuesday trips).

Today I was in the definite mood for buying.
Proudly presenting:

My first yarn purchase of the year 2011

It is Louisa Harding Grace Hand-dyed, 50% merino and 50% silk (made in Italy, dyed in Chile) and Debbie Bliss Andes, 65% baby alpaca and 35% mulberry silk (made in Peru). I have not worked with silk before and want to give it a go. Just for the touch of it.

I know that my choice of wool is not vegan, but so was lunch at my favourite Asian place in Oldenburg:

a bento sushi platter

Tuesdays, I like you!

Die kräftig-rosa Andes habe ich auch gerade auf den Nadeln. Es wird ein Schal, klingt langweilig, ist aber ein (Wunsch-)Kombiteil für meine jüngere Tochter.
Die Wolle fühlt sich toll an, pillt aber ziemlich, doch das muß man bei Dochtwolle wohl hinnehmen.
Ich bringe ihn Mittwoch mal mit.
