Yarn!

The skein of green silk I'd ordered arrived, and I can finally finish making the cloth for Aphrodite's altar.

And then I can get back to working on the blue-and-green cotton cloth for the heathen altar. It's a good color, a nice yarn--three ply, one ply each of blue, light blue and green, looks very sea-like. Slow going because I'm using #4 needles (the green silk seems now to be flying by on the #8s I'm using!) but worth it.

I'd also ordered some bulky Icelandic wool for Dan to use in naalbinding. It's lovely stuff, wonderful colors, lovely texture, but he thinks it may have too soft a twist to use for naalbinding (with naalbinding you don't work from the skein, you use shorter pieces of yarn and join them as needed because each stitch takes the whole of the yarn through the loop--I haven't done it myself but I've watched him). I hope he's wrong on that, I'd love to see it made up into something.
