Some new HDF stash
Miss Victoria Clayton of Hand Dyed Fibers fame recently held a clearance sale ... about half the price ... in order for her stock to transit to a newer brand of silk, said to be superior to the old one. (I've yet to try the new silk, but it sounds very exciting!).
What's a girl to do but to take advantage of the sale. I hope other HDF fans, like Mona and Veronica and the unforgettable AW (Aw, I know you read this blog!!!) back in MAlaysia also did some retail therapy.
Here's what came in the mail last Saturday: all variegateds, including some of her LE ones and a detritus bag, which was offered for six bucks. Out of the D-bag was a few partial skeins, full skeins and most of a hank of a variegated darkish green. Very pretty!
I wanted to make another order, but was persuaded to use some of the current stash first and then get others "at the regular price". That's ok, I've got a bunch of cool project ideas in my head for what I've got. More to come, after the tiger is done!
