A wonderful package arrived in the mail this week.
Angora Valley Fibers had a contest to name two of their new Lacewing colourways, and I won. Sort of. See, in my entry, I said that the colours kind of reminded me of twilight, so I suggested the name Gloaming. Pat chose the name Twilight, which someone else had suggested, but very generously also decided that I qualified as well. How totally cool is that!
I have a * few * skeins of Pat's lovely Monarch sock yarn in my stash just waiting to be knit up, and I can say that it feels absolutely wonderful to pet, the yardage is very generous, and the colours are glorious. Thanks so much, Pat -- I'm very much looking forward to playing with your luxurious yarns!
Here's another look at the gloaming-y, Twilight-y, goodness:
Ain't it grand!
In a totally unrelated matter, just in case someone happens to be stalking me and/or someone happens to be wondering whatever happened to this --
-- I am happy to report that it is well on its way to becoming part of this --
-- and that's all I'm gonna say on that subject for now :-)
