Wherein Romi pets pretty yarnz

I know. It's been a long time again. I've been a bad bad blogger. But have accomplished much! Before we get to that, though, I still want to share my gorgeous yarnz from Yarnover.

First up? These lace weight beauties given to me by the lovely people at Sun Valley Fibers. I particularly favor the grey.
Can you see the purple streaks in the grey? I love these two together. They are yummy!
And this green loveliness is from Little Gidding Farm. 100% suri alpaca lace weight. It is the softest, most silky incredible skein of fluff! It is truly drool-worthy.
Here we have a wool and corn blend. Yes! Corn! From Corny Goodness. I love the way it feels. I saw a shawl sample and it knits up something like Shetland wool, but much less scratchy. I can't wait to play with it!
Here's the 100% corn. It feels a lot like a cotton. Perfect for spring or summer!
And then I pet the bunny. (Did you notice I was in a purple and grey mood?) These are angora/merino from Kimmet Croft. So soft! I really can't wait to try it. btw, the purple is pretty spot on, but the picture doesn't come close to doing the grey justice. I do love me some good grey.
Guess what? Alcyone is released!
And with her release, all of the ebook shawls are out! (I do have a couple of little extra accessory patterns that are going in too, though.)
While I was putting together the final final pattern, something that I had been awaiting with great anticipation came.
Look how shiny they are!
I love them. :) In fact, the last pair of cowboy boots I ordered (but for way less money than shown) are going back, because these are just so much more me!
So I had to put them on and wear them around. Especially during my little photo shoot.
I enjoyed my private joke.
I also sent out a secret project that I so wish I could share with you! But, sadly, you will have to wait until winter.

And my shop is back up!

More to come soon. :)

Thanks for showing us your YarnOver haul! I'm originally from Minneapolis, so it was fun to travel vicariously with you - glad it was such a great trip! I never heard of corn yarn - I'll be curious to check it out sometime...

And yes, those boots are Very Shiny! Did you click your heels together 3 times? There truly is no place like home, eh?

Oh MY, oh MY! So many pretties! I'm pretty partial to the grey with purple... kinda looks like my hair! LOL!!

(the boots are cute too! I do love a good red shoe!)

I've been waiting so very patiently for Alcyone but she'll have to wait until I've finished Taygete and Sakaki!

Loving the shiny red boots - so perfect!
