I have been drooling over Sosae Caetano’s rovings for months now and I finally decided not just on one order, but how about a 4-month’s supply of roving? Yup, I signed up for one of her Fiber Clubs and here’s my wool and yarn from Month #1. Galaxy is a merino/bamboo blend dyed in my favorite colors: purple, blue, green. The end product is about 382 yarns of 2-ply fingering weight yarn. Happy Happy Happy!!

I am absolutely in LOVE with this yarn so it will stay in my personal stash. I had thought about making socks but since I’d want to stare at them all the time, I fear I’d end up tripping or running into things (I’m one of those uncoordinated-types who can’t walk and chew gum at the same time without choking, so socks are out). Instead I think I’m going to make myself a pair of fingerless gloves – that way if I keep my hands in front of me while I walk I can stare at them without fear of a near-death accident. 🙂
