How do you feel about sparkle? Some people love it (like me!) and some don't. It certainly adds a fun flair to a project. Since we are getting ready to enter a sparkly time of year, let's explore some of the sparkly items available on FiberCrafty!
As always, thanks for supporting FiberCrafty and our shops!
Modern Renaissance Bitty Batts is a collection of coordinating mini batts that will make a fun spinning project! Hand carded with a variety of fiber including Polwarth, organic Polwarth, tussah silk, silk noil, and firestar sparkle for a total of 2.8 ounces. $15.40
Space Traveler is a funky colorway that is mostly black with pops of neon green, blue and purple! A delightfully sparkly base plays well into the idea of space. Fingering weight yarn with 75% superwash merino, 20% nylon and 5% Lurex. 437 yards. $20
Black Diamond sounds so exotic! A tonal charcoal grey base made with 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere and 10% Stellina means this is not only full of sparkly but also luxurious softness. Fingering weight with 420 yards. $30
This fiber blend sounds so dreamy - it is pin drafted roving made from 50% Rambouillet (as soft as merino), 40% Cashmere and 10% Firestar! Firestar is so fine it basically blends into the fiber and just gives it an incredible shimmer. 4 ounces. $14

My elbow seems to be feeling better but I am still trying not to overdo it. My daughter really wants her Julgran sweater for the holidays and I'm so close to being done so I am working on that when I can. How can I say no?
Just for fun
We love Asian food and I recently found a quick stir fry sauce that is SO easy and good. I almost always have the ingredients on hand and this makes a quick dinner. If you like it, you can double it and use it again in the following week. It calls for 1/2 cup chicken broth but because my daughter is vegetarian I use vegetable broth or even water.
We usually cook some rice noodles and mix them with broccoli, almonds and the sauce then top with chicken or shrimp (I only leave those out for the vegetarian). It would be wonderful with loads of sauteed veggies, too! I hope that you enjoy it.
