Is it Wednesday already? Lord, this week flew by.
I think the hazy fog that is known as NY Sheep and Wool has overcome my senses. I know those who could not attend are so SICK of all of the post-fiber-frenzy posts and need a slight pick-me-up.
Lets all sit back, relax, and enjoy the pure bliss that is:
Artist 007: Lori from Oceanwind Knits
Double-OH-Seven is a great number for this woman... she is smooth and sophisticated in her style, all the while knocking you out with a mix of lush colors and luxury fibers.
Oceanwind Knits Suri Silk Laceweight: Tickled
Lori has an insanely precise and natural sense for colour. She started dyeing roughly 2 years ago as "an extension of painting, and as an extension of being a knitting designer. I've been a traditional artist/painter for most of my life and dyeing developed naturally from that".
I started seeing Lori's yarns online at the Sweet Sheep... and have been *slightly* obsessed ever since. This yarn, in particular, has just made me speechless.
Superwash Merino Fingering: Vancouver Island
Original pattern by Lori Law
Lori has offered 10% off to you Junkies through the end of November! Use the coupon code:
Since we are in "Mobtown", I will envoke the power of "mob rule" . Please , when you leave your fiber - loving and general *squee* or *drool* or *OH MY GOD* at the beep, let me know what you think.
