Lovely fiber motherload

Ahh... We had a fantastic, romantic, rain-free vacation in New York City.

Of course, I got my fiber fix:


habu

Habu 2/24 naturally dyed cashmere, and a wooden darning egg from Smart Time Designs.



chunkyalpaca

Blue Sky alpaca bulky, in the palest dove grey.



nordenlinen

Weeks Dye Works overdyed linen, in straw.



swanisland

Swan Island worsted, in grey. Enough to knit an Acer cardigan.



nanifuwari

Nani Iro Fuwari linen.



yellowroadtochina

Road to China Light, in citrine.



basketweave2

Alchemy Kozmos, in platinum. I'm knitting a very simple basket weave scarf.



It's hard to believe that the holidays are almost over... it's been such an excellent summer! But all this lovely stuff does make me look forward to the coming cooler days. Are you excited about fall too?
