I can't share any details of the test knit that I just finished up, as it is for a club and must remain a surprise. I will say that I really like the colorway. I can share my yarn choice for the next test knit I need to work on - The Velveteen Rabbit, which is the next Unique Sheep Mystery Knit Along. Ellen of Earthfaire has been working with Kelly of The Unique Sheep on some wonderful circle colorways made up of 12 skeins. I offered to do my test knit in one of those circles so we would be able to provide the transition points for those sets as well as the traditional 6-skein sets. This is the colorway that I chose - Enchanted Garden.
I also got some new yarn in over the last few weeks - as if I need any more yarn in this house. I did successfully complete all three projects this past summer for Camp Loopy, so I had to select my reward. I ended up picking the skein on the left in the picture below.
Layer Cake Shawl. This is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Color in the Clouds and Grapevine. And of course while I was at the The Loopy Ewe web site some other yarn found its way into my cart.
Sinua, from the Fall 2016 Twist Collective.
I also had some Jimmy Beans Bucks that were set to expire at the end of this month, so of course I had to find something there to spend them on and ended up with this yarn, which is also madelinetosh Tosh DK, in Havana. I'm going to use this to make Caledonia, from the Fall 2014 Twist Collective.
