Oh, the fibery goodness!
Dave Danniels f Cabn Cove fame is closing out his stock, so I threw myself on the sale while the selection was good and selfishly didn't do a blog post because his stuff is wondermous awesomesauce and I wanted to get mine first. It has arrived, so you are all now free to descend upon his store like wolves upon the fold!
Here you see three luscious hand-dyed merino rovings in Black Cherry, Buttercup, and Yankee Ikat. The two white cylinders contain spice blends - the Taste of Cabin Cove. I already gave the third collection of seasonings to DH. I will be baking with the Provence blend (with lavender!) and I know he'll be using the more savory selections in soups, stews and sauces.
The Summer of Spinning totebag somehow got included in the package as well. What a treat!
And here is some of Dave's luscious handspun yarn. The blue and white is Yankee Skycat, and the pink/blue/green is Spring Garden. Oh lordy I yearn to knit! You will notice at the bottom of the right side of the photo some knitted stripey glory. Dave, the uber generous, also stuck in a pair of wool socks made from his very own custom dyed yarn. Oh, I do love hand-knit socks, and I do so hate to make them!
And being the awesome guy he is, Dave even sent a gift for the kitties. But Pepper has claimed as her own and refuses to share the nifty box with the crinkly paper and the fascinating SMELLS! The other cats are interested, but Pepper has hunkered down in the box, spread her cat fat widely, and hissed at anyone else daring to investigate. Do you suppose she might be catching whiffs of that devilishly suave Boston cat, Dusty?
