WIP Wednesday: Something Blissful

I finished a lot of projects over the weekend (which I'll be blogging about eventually, of course), and I find myself with only one new project on the needles: on Monday night, I cast on for the Long's Peak 3-in-1 Mitts by Marly Bird, which have been in my queue since the Rocky Mountain Collection came out in 2013.

I've been saving two skeins of Bijou Bliss yarn for the occasion - one in a lovely grass green, and then a deep blue-green which was a limited-edition color. I've made several projects with this yarn (a 50/50 blend of yak and cormo wool), and it's always a delight to work with. The hand-dyed colorways have since been discontinued, but you can still snag skeins in natural cream and natural brown if you are so inclined!

I am still working on my cozy memories blanket, but I imagine folks are tired of seeing the same progress photo again and again since it's such a slow burner of a project. However, I do have one more update for this week: after selling out of sock yarn miniskein in my Etsy shop a few weeks ago, I have at last restocked! There are some really great hand-dyed and luxury yarn possibilities, and several of the colorways I have are limited edition, one-of-a-kind, or from now-defunct hand dyers.

I have a new lower price for grab bags and offer free first class shipping to all US addresses. Also, I am totally happy to fulfill reasonable-ish requests with regards to the content of your grab bag.
