New Yarn and a Middle Earth themed project planned

I have to wait on the book The Eclectic Sole to knit these up but the yarn arrived today! A merino/Tencel combo which I bought because the colours really reminded me of Elvish structures :)


Chameleon Colorworks Twinkle Toes in Glacial Moraine



Georgeous stuff indeed, but the name also reminded me of my A Level geography class and stuying Glaciers...............funny what comes back to you more than 20 years later.............terminal, medial and lateral moraine!! Hugh the teacher would be proud!! :)

I think, no pressure, that you can also download the Rivendell pattern. Of course the books is so close release and is now on my list. Wonder how long before Amazon.co.uk get it!!Lovely yarn you have there aswell.

I should mention that the book is due out 27th May and preorders like mine are to be signed by Janel :D

I don't mind waiting and it was very little more money for the book!

I have other projects to finish anyway.
