Happy mail!

I trudged tiredly up the stairs after work today, wiped out from a day of constant action. And then suddenly I was animated by the sight of these two large parcels from Wool Warehouse.

Yay! My order arrived. It took 3 weeks to get here but the important thing is that it came before December 1st.

So what was in the parcels? Ten balls of Wendy Husky in the Peak colourway. 100 grams, 100% acrylic, super chunky, and enough to make a sweater.

Eight balls of Scheepjes Truly Scrumptious, an aran weight yarn, soft and squishy, 100 gram balls, 50% acrylic, 50% recycled plastic bottles. The colour is Spirulina Bites, which was a huge gamble, because I was trying to get out of my comfort zone and was worried it was going to be too bright a green. But so far, bearing in mind I haven’t seen it in daylight, I love it.

In addition, I bought two balls each of the same yarn in Açai Bowl and Honeycomb Crunch. I asked Mr Fixit for his input in colour choices and I think we nailed it. So those will become another sweater.

A Scheepjes Softfun colour pack – this is the Rich one – which contains 12 x 20g balls of cotton/acrylic yarn.

And a Rainbow one.

A Snoopy fat quarter bundle. Nuff said!

And finally, some safety eyes in two sizes (6mm and 9mm) for future crochet fun.

Thanks to a generous gift from my friends, this lot only cost me £25! Because apparently I was unable to stay within the budget.

A great day for boosting the stash!
