Left over Yarn

I knitted a cowl from Goddess Knits and I had enough yarn left over to knit a scarf/shawl. I adore them both and I am seem to be wearing them whenever I can. Although at the moment it is too hot, but I shouldn't complain about that.

This made me me think about all the yarn I have collected over the years, especially from the Unicorn club blanket. This was a mystery yarn which was dyed up every month for a year by Fyberspates and The Natural Dye Studios. I bought a skein or two each month and ended up with a rather big blanket.  It turned out it was made of Silk, Cashmere and Llama. As a consequence I have quite a few balls of varying colours.

Found the perfect profile picture

I have looked and looked for a picture of a knitting faerie. This is the name I use on Ravelry but have not been able to. I would love to find something for my Esty account and shop. That is until yesterday when I came across this site Knittington Faeries . I have written to Marianna and she replied saying shewill get back to me next week as she is finishing a book. Then we are going to discuss the idea  of her doing a faerie knitting the words "Wrapped In Colour" . I am soooo excited at the idea.

On Esty

Finally I have opened my shop on Esty by putting 2 scarves which I have knitted. It seems to have taken ages to check the shipping amounts, write up the information etc. So now I just have to sit and hope when or if anybody decides to buy something I can get the next step done correctly. :-)

As for the yarn for the wedding shawl I have found some on Esty and Knitting Goddess and Fyberspates are going to dye some for me.
