Boost to the wool stash

Oh my, I am almost too excited to type. I ordered wool. It arrived today. Yippppeeeeeeeeeee! I finally have my own Stylecraft Special DK stash in ‘Lucy colours’ (plus emperor). I know most of you are familiar with this palette, and use it in your own crochet creations (hence why I finally had to order my own!), but let’s take a look anyway, shall we? I know I am in good company for looking at wool in blogland::

Starting from the yellow (‘saffron’) going anti-clockwise, we have:: saffron, shrimp, fondant, pomegranate, lipstick, magenta, plum, emperor, wisteria, lavender, clematis, cloud blue, sherbet, aster, turquoise, meadow, aspen and spring green. 18 shades of loveliness.

Want a closer look? Ok then…

I got a little carried away arranging the wool and taking photos. Actually I spent way too long arranging the wool, shade by shade, mixing them up, picking them up, putting them down, until I finally had to put them back into their packing bag and hide them in the cupboard. There is only so much wool admiration I reckon I can get away with before The Bert reconsiders our marriage and I think I was pushing it.

So, here’s to new wool and new projects in dazzling multicolour! Happy Thursday everyone!

About thehouseofjones

Hello! Thanks for visiting, it's lovely to see you! I'm Jones, I'm 31, and I live with my husband (The Bert) and chinchilla (JB) in Gloucestershire. When I'm not at work I love crochet, sewing, cooking, baking, taking photos and dabbling in a bit of gardening and grow-your-own, and this is what I write about mainly. That and the general chit chat of life. So, take a look around, comment if you'd like, just make yourself feel at home really!

    Oh my, I have to admit I am a little envious right now. I so want wool but have not found a brand I am willing to pay the higher price for. I haven’t heard of this brand before though so I will have to check it out. Also there is no such thing as too much adoration of such pretty wool, your Bert will learn that 🙂
