Ecru, Brute?

Colourmart, which deals in mill ends, sent an email. Things were a little slow, so they cut prices in half on a few silks and cashmeres for the week. (Note that you can pay them $5 per cone at checkout to twist the finer stuff into a thicker yarn.)

Thirteen dollars for 150g, and it still did the 22% discount for buying six. Now that was a deal. They say the US postal service now basically requires a tracking fee that they can’t afford to cover, but I could deal with that.

There are those who are even allergic to cashmere, but everyone I’ve ever known has been able to tolerate silk and I’ve worked with and know that yarn so I’m pretty pleased about it.

It’s been a goodly while since I added to my stash simply to have it on hand for when it’s needed. I have a feeling it will be. Because it’s too good to let it just sit there.

So tempting! It’s good to have classics in the stash, ready when needed.

If I hadn’t already bought 40 balls of yarn through another Website, last month, I’ld jump on these offers.

Alas, I need to knit what I have far more than I need new yarn.

May you enjoy every stitch you knit with these beauties, when the time comes.
