New Yarn!

I have managed to do a little dyeing in my new (still very much unpacked) space.  There are now two new shades of blue in my Straw's Farm fingering weight line-up in addition to new dyelots of a few friends,  and collections of fingering weight mini-skeins.    

And the DK weight Gotland is finally back from the mill!!!  I love the color of this yarn too much to over-dye it.

I fell in love with Gundrun Johnston's Bousta Beanie Pattern (designed for the 2017 Shetland Wool Week) so with a bit of friendly prodding from Sarah Hunt of FiberTrekTV I put together a kit!
