My first act with my resurrected washing machine was felt two bags that were waiting in the wings. The top one is a random wool that I bought from someone's stash on eBay for dirt cheap. It was not by any means a pleasure to knit with, but it felts great. The bottom bag is knit from Noro Kuryeon. I love the self striping and there is always something in the colorway that makes you say "hmmm?" then "yah baby!" when it comes out of the machine. I always love the surprise of felting, what will come out of that machine?
My LYS has started carrying the beautiful yearns of the Great Adirondack Yarn Company. I was seduced by some jewel toned silk in a colorway called Plum Loco. I have cast on for another Clapotis, this one for my mother's birthday. Sadly the photo does not do the yarn justice.
