clogs and wool


Today my clear clogs arrived, plus a ball of wool I'd added. It's
Universal Yarns -Wisdom Yarns......San Francisco shade 201
75% Superwash Wool, 25% Polyamide
437 yds / 100 gm Gauge: 6.75-8 sts/inch

those are the 'technical details'.... :)
Will try to get a picture of it taken - it's a lovely bright flamboyant mix of colours, from the Marathon cities range. I'd never heard of this wool before, and as I was ordering the clogs anyway, I thought I'd treat myself to a ball of something which I can't get here: not much point in getting something I can buy here - Christmas present to myself.

So......the clogs. Nice, but NOT CLEAR by my definition of clear; they are see through, but have a lilac tint. So although I like them, I'm a bit disappointed......

Now: on to other things; two lots of ebay goodies: some absolutely gorgeous Regia silk in my most favourite colour, scarlet.........


and some more Regia - Kaffe Fassett Landscape Twilight......


so a day of goodies, and I'll have to have a good think as to what to make with the scarlet silk regia......ten balls.....and I'm not a 'socialising' person, so a pretty wrap or shawl wouldn't really be the thing......ideas and suggestions welcome.........
