Beyond Life Expectancy

Can you find Miss Kitty?  She looks like fiber, but she's not wrapped in plastic.

Last year I emptied my fiber cabinet (thanks Sojourn Knitter) and decided that this year I won't need to buy fiber at the New  York Sheep and Wool Festival.

From then until now I purchased at least 10 more braids.  I'm a sucker for color first, fiber second.

(Scratching fiber off the shopping list.)

At last the give-away skein is finished.  Abstract Fibers in Rock Star 2-ply spun woolen, 243 yards, 97 grams, 14 wpi.  It's squishy and delicious.

It'll be sad to see it go, but I hope it makes someone happy.

Now back to my sock.

  1. Awww! I almost didn't see her there. I have to start watching my fiber /yarn stash enhancement too, it's close to beyond life expectancy already. :o)

    Have lots of fun at Rhinebeck! The yarn looks lovely with the ball band. You are too kind!
