A Bit More COLOR ! ! !


Molly Weasley
75% Superwash Merino/25% Nylon
great for sox and fingerless wrist warmers


Arthur Weasley in Silk
oh, yeah, SILK
70% Merino Wool/30% Silk
definitely not for my feet but won't this silk content feel luxurious wrapped 'round my neck this winter?????


I've made a couple of orders from GnomeAcres and let me tell you
Amanda gives very personal attention with each order I've placed.
Both times Service AND DELIVERY were EXCELLENT.
Arthur was order on a Saturday afternoon
and was in my Mailbox before noon MONDAY ! ! ! 
How's that for instant gratification.

Amanda / GnomeAcres does the magic to her yarns by creating colorways that instantly grab our hearts! 
Swoon, swoon.
Amanda's etsy shop is here:  GnomeAcresEtsy where you can catch her up-dates.
Her blog/podcast can be found here: GnomeAcres
Amanda can also be found on Ravelry 

Progress on a project or two
will be in the next post or so.

It's raining a bit this morning
almost .25"
That's not a record, but at least the driveway is wet.

hugs

  4. The only experience I've had with Gnome Acres was with a sample in a Phat Fiber box. She does produce some really pretty colorways, I really like the one's you bought especially! You have some fun new projects in the works, that is for sure.

  8. I totally, totally agree with you on the amazing service at Gnome Acres. I've ordered stuff twice there, once yarn (yummy yummy) and more recently fiber, and I don't know how she does it, but it all gets to Norway in no time at all. Plus the yarn is plush and soft and all kinds of lovely. Happy knitting!!

    1. Moïra, I have yet to knit with it.
      The Franklin colorway is going to be for the Knitabulls KAL beginning July first. Franklin is Diane of Knitabulls Podcast/Rav Group beautiful cocktiel
      Can't wait to knit this Gnome Acres creation in her fingering weight.

      Thanks for checking out my blog.

  9. I found your blog via Andi's and I can see why you're friends - you're as bad of an enabler as she is! And it looks like we share a love for similar colors. This might be dangerous...

    1. I haven't been following Andi's blog very long but truly enjoy what I've seen/read so far, Jody.
      I've checked out your Projects, do I see a color theme goin' on? Love you COLOR ! ! !
      So MANY yarns, so MANY cool patterns, so little time.
      Also, just found Thea Colman via Vodka Lemonade - I've posted in her Rav VL thread.
      Yes, all in all after seeing your projects, you are the Enabler.
