Hello everybody :),
Eva-Maria (without blog) and me went to Hamburg yesterday to visit the storage sale at the
It was OVERWHELMING.
First we went into the storage rooms. There where huge bins full of pre-wound yarn and you bought the cones by weight. Like Merino-cashmere-silk (different percentage content) for 1.5 - 3 Euro per 50g. Some of the colours where uhm different but there were a lot of different colours still and I was pretty tempted but there weren't any m/50gr indications and I still need that but the lady said, that it might be around 220m/50gr .
But since I had specific projects in mind I got not much there.
I did get a cone of a yarn that has 4 different single yarns spun together at the 80 Cent/50gr from the "unknown" content bins
The rest of my purchase I got at the regular store...
The store is fun. There are HUGE cones of single thread yarn and you get them wound together at your specifications.
So I dove into MERINO yarn for 1.5 Euro/50g I got 5 and 4 thread yarn.
Note, the yarn is not plied!
First project will be from this
Merino in dark teal.
This will hopefully be Tempting II soon, as soon as Elspeth does decide to behave and let me knit it without ribbing and ribbig AGAIN
See all the cool Tempting II at the net
Next are 4 different merino wools for the stripey wavy line sweater from vintage knits
The link brings you to a cool guy who knit that awesome sweater for his girlfriend. My DH plays WOW.... *sigh*
o.k. I got some sock yarn too, so there is the complete purchase
o.k. shall I knit now or shall I sew a bit? I think I'll just have dinner first :)
