Adding to Stash

Numma Numma is back and I was able to get some new yarn.  In the Usual base, I got Lunch with the Knitgirlls, in the Toasty base, I got Fresh peppers and Blackberry jam.  I love Numma Numma Yarn.

At the Knitter’s Edge, I got two different types of Manos del Uruguay yarn.  In lace, which is 70% baby alpaca, 25% silk and 5% cashmere, I got color 7805.

Finally, from the Loopy Ewe, the April Yarn club came. It was comprised of Madelinetosh Sock in the color Midnight Rendevous with a shawl pattern called Nefertem by Kristen Kapur and a sock pattern called Rubux by Jeannie Cartmel.  Also included in the package was a BIG Baggu Bag

Firecracker looks fantastic in the picture so it MUST be more-so in person! Where-ever did you get it - online perhaps?????

Firecracker is by Twisted Limone. You can find her on etsy at:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/TwistedLimoneDesigns?ref=top_trail (or google her)
Updates are usually on Saturday at 1 PM EST. You have to be quick when buying and can only usually get one skein at a time. She also has a Ravelry group where she announces what colors will be offered. She is on vacation until May 14th.

Another great stripey yarn is String Theory Colorworks. You can google her. She use to have an etsy shop, but now has her own web site. You can sign up for updates.

Good Luck.
