Hoota thunk !
Certainly not me. But I have.
Yep, I joined my first Yarn Clubs
My first shipment ARRIVED ! ! !
This club is knitspot's club by Anne Hanson the
designer of my les Abeillies Shawl from Camp Loopy this past summer.
Here's a blurb taken from her description of the purpose of this club:
"in this club we’ll knit with a variety of fibers in their natural, undyed state to learn about and appreciate the unique characteristics of each. yarns will be a surprise each month but will include a range of animal and/or vegetable fibers (sheep, goat, camelids, yak, silk, and cotton are some possibilities) in shades from cream to khaki to gray to chocolate—”sheepy” yarns if you will. some will be soft, some will be lustrous, some will have stout, sturdy character that softens over time with long use (like vintage blue jeans). yarn weights will vary; projects will focus on accessories, scarves, and shawls (possibly including a sock or baby item) that feature lace and openwork stitch patterns. "
this week I received the second of three shipments from

My little purple-y Owlie Delight came from
ETA: And, now I just placed an order this morning.
Not certain when these two yarns will be knit up into some lusciousness because tomorrow is March First.
What's special about March 1st, you ask.
Why it's a start of a new month of kals.
I'm joining at least two this month and I think it is doable.
Diane at Knitabulls is having March Monster Madness That is - any monster knit between the first and the thirty-first.
Diane's podcast is great! Lots of enthusiasm for knitting and spinning.
Plus, if you've a love of English Bulldogs - - -
Take a look, see if I'm right about enthusiasm.

Angus from last month]
I'm going to attempt yet a third monster
for this kal

when she is third in line for this kal . . . :*)
