"At DC's Request......"

Thank you DC for asking to see my purchases from Blackberry Ridge Woolen Mill. I didn't have any photos for a post today, so didn't write one, but after reading DC's comment, I went right out to the deck and took some photos. :) Now, at your suggestion, I have something to write about....."Show and Tell" I guess, eh? ;)

Here is everything I bought last Sunday. I took some close up photos so will write more about the yarns along with those.

This is the 100% silk yarn that I "envision" weaving up into a very soft, beautiful scarf. It is a hand painted lace weight, 2 ply, 3.2 oz., and 580 yards per skein. The color is Blossom.

These are 2 of their bulky hand painted yarns. It is also 2 ply, 25% Mohair/ 75% Wool....colors are Blue Violet and Forest Floor. I've started a hat for myself, but it may become a gift if I don't like how it looks on me. :) I'm not really a "hat person", so feel strange when I have one on. The pattern I'm using is one of Blackberry Ridge's own- "Fuzzy Mohair Hat and Mittens".

Another of their patterns that I bought, and the yarn to knit it, is the "East to West Vest". The yarn is called "Colorflow Rag" and is a Medium weight 2 ply, 100% wool, and comes in 365 yard skeins. The color is "Evening".

The other patterns were ones I bought "just because" and for something to knit in the future. :) A boy scout I never was, but I believe in being prepared. ;)

Again, thank you DC for the inspiring todays post.
