It is, perhaps, unfortunate that I have discovered that there is copious amounts of otherwise unavailable yarn to had from ebay. I am very very very pleased that shortly I will be the proud owner of:
Elvincraft BFL sock yarn in “Woaded Warrior Woman” (which already sounds like one fierce pair of socks!)
2 balls of Crystal Palace Chunky Mochi in Rainbow! I have been trying to get my hands on this yarn for months – it’s not retailed anywhere in Montreal, and you know how much I LOVE my rainbow yarn. I consider whether “pride knitting” should become a niche of mine…
Which reminds me! I have two people interested in rainbow legwarmers – time to pull up my stockings and be pro-active!!
