Hey, it’s just six balls of yarn, and I’ve used two balls last week, every little bit of them until nothing was left.

The Drops Air is gorgeous, I could pet it all day. The yarn is not spun, but air-blown into a tube. Do I have to learn air-blowing now instead of spinning? I hope not…

The two balls on the right are Schoppelwolle Gradient, a worsted weight version of their beautiful Zauberball yarn. The blue one will be knit together with a strand of the weight Big Fabel, I hope my idea will look as nice in reality as it does in my imagination.

And here’s the proof that I’ve used two balls of yarn, the Viking Eco Alpaca I brought from Norway in the summer:
