I love the Postman

Well not really, but when I'm waiting for a delivery and I can't wait to get my hands on the parcel that I know is coming, I could love the postie for bringing me my package!

So what was I waiting for???

These beautiful skeins from Michelle at Needle Food.

She's based in New Zealand and she's new. The colour is Sweet Chilli and I have a vague thought of making a pair of socks for my cold feeted husband to wear. They are 80% Merino, 20% nylon and feel soft and smooshy. Think I came across an add for her yarn on Ravelry, or maybe Twist Collective, don't remember now, but she is book marked for sure now!

Need a close up? Here you go! Check out those oranges and reds!

An added bonus was these cute little stitch markers made by Marcie of In Stitches.
Do you think it's mad to get Jules to look on Rav for a sock pattern he might like????

Oh - thanks for letting me know about her - in my own country too!

I was stalking the postie this week for the very same reason. I love her stuff. I got some blueberry crush and lavender infusion. They are beautiful aren't they!

oh she looks like she makes lovely stuff. Socks for sure, I reckon. Brand new skeins are truly exciting!

Michelle said...

I want to same "damn you" for sharing the link to Needle Food, but I'm actually glad you did! Beautiful stuff!

As if I really needed more sock wool. However, it's on its way soon.

Apologies if this posts twice. Blogger has its comments knickers in a knot at the moment and I've tried several times.
