Woot! We ordered some yarn directly from Lion Brand and it arrived!!

I was a bit surprised the were able to pack all our order in two boxes but then again, the boxes are slam full!! I was so excited, I tore into it before thinking to take pictures

We ordered 9 skeins of the fisherman's wool in brown for a special order cloak. Keep an eye out, I am sure to be blogging about it. They want the floor length hooded cloak with sleeves.....I think that is called a robe but if they want to call it a cloak that is fine with me!!

Kristina's stash - she loves the specialty yarns. We ordered some Merino wool, several skeins of the Moonlight Mohair (it has mohair in it!!) and some fun fur (you would be amazed what you can make with fun fur!). Pretty nice collection and I am sure you will see some fun and interesting items come from this box!

We ordered quite a large assortment of the homespun yarn. Originally we didn't really like the homespun - that extra little ribbon would catch on the crochet hook. Then we switched to larger hooks and wow! Now we love love love it and it can make some beautiful items. These colors should work up into some pretty pretty crochet creations.

Cotton! We did purchase more cotton then anything else. We figured with summer coming that cotton would be a good choice to work with - natural, easy to care for and looks good. We purchased extra white and natural so we could play with dying it ourselves with some natural dyes. Should be great fun!

I already snagged some yarn and starting dyeing - here is a few of the finished skeins. Once dry we have to untangle them because I thought it was a good idea to throw them into the washer. Who knew?

Thanks for reading and keep coming back! More exciting crafting coming up!
