Oh Happy Days...

... until I realize how much money I've spent.
Today was out March Knit-Out with Lois handing out the long waited Jaggerspun Spree goodies. Since the loot was still on cones we had some winding to do:

I had 12 OZ (app 350 grams) of Zephy 2/18 (wool-silk blend) waiting for me:

Care Instructions:
  • Hand wash lukewarm, do not bleach
  • Preferably dry clean
  • Cool iron can be used under a pressing cloth, never iron wet
  • Do not tumble dry
Storage tips:
For long-term storage, make sure this yarn is in a moth-proofed environment. Clean, clear plastic containers work extremely well. You can also wrap the garment in archival tissue paper to extend garment life.
