Snow and Fireball Yarn

Yup, that's right, it is Ocotober 14th and snowing. I'm not talking little dusty flakes either - big ol'wet ones. Snowing before halloween? I took a photo, but don't have it here at work. Last year our first snow was the day after Thanksgiving, which I think is perfect. I guess this year it IS the day after Canadian Thanksgiving - maybe God just got confused. Sigh. I just talked to my cousin in Virginia, they are wearing tank tops, and here I am sitting at my computer wearing my Endpaper Mitts. Truthfully I am more shocked than disgusted.

Okay, now to share with you my Fireball yarn, soon to be listed in my Etsy shop. I still need to weigh and count my niddy noddy wraps for length. I spun this yarn from the fireball fiber braid created on my crafty weekend. This yarn is two ply (that means there are two strands spun together) and is super wash wool. I really like how the textured turned out and I'm curious what it will look like knitted. My current debate with self is to knit something with it for my shop or to sell the yarn.

That brings us to my latest poll (vote on the right). What shall I do with this lovely yarn? Please vote!


  1. I cannot believe it is already snowing! Crazy fall! I voted for fingerless gloves.

  2. Beautiful yarn. Sorry about the snow.


  3. Oh god... YUM! PLease sell it as-is...mitts, or a gorgeous scarf.... I think it won't linger long in your shop..

    Jealous of your snow... it's 80+ here.

    Oh...and I'm all over Ravelry... here's my link!http://www.ravelry.com/people/Autumnsky5

  4. Beautiful yarn! Great color.

  5. This is great! I love the color.

    I'm jealous of your snow. I used to live in Texas and happily moved to NW Arkansas because they always got enough snow to make me happy. However, the snow has been a huge let down sine moving here. Perhaps I'll just pack up and move up to Wyoming or something. They get snow there :)

  6. I'm pining for a pair of fingerless gloves with mitten flaps, so that gets my vote. I love the texture as well, and the colors just enhance it even more. Sorry about the snow...it's blazing hot here (not sure which I would rather have........)
