As well as the yarn I bought at the weekend, I do have another new skein to show you. So much for my stash reduction plans *laughs*
I ordered this skein of Wollmeise a couple of weeks ago, and after a small diversion to the post office, it is now in my grabby hands ;)
It's a gorgeous rusty orange sort of colour, perfect for autumn. I was originally planning to make some fancy socks with it, but as I was putting it away I put it next to a skein of Old Maiden Aunt that has been waiting in my stash for some considerable time...
I love the two together and am thinking of perhaps making another Stripe Study Shawl. I really like the idea of a subtle toned one, after the contrasting coloured one I made before:
It's a pattern I love, and the thing that I love most is that it stays on my shoulders, unlike any shawl or wrap ever *grins*
