A browney orangey one and a greeney reddy one in the etsy and folksy shops. I found a couple of balls of noro silk garden on sale and this is the result. For the non yarn crafty people silk garden is a luxurious handspun handdyed silk mohair mix yarn from Japan. It’s usually about £9 a ball and therefore reserved for those special projects. But every now and then you can find individual balls half price!
And just something I’ve been meaning to mention/moan about for a while: shipping costs on etsy. They are so unreasonable in far too many places! I’ve been looking for a cocktail hat for my wedding, and I’ve actually decided to stop looking on etsy because the shipping to the UK in most US-based shop is extortionate! I get post from the US fairly regurarly and I know how much it costs. It’s not that cheap but it’s not $38 for a $25 hat that weighs hardly anything and folds up small (I can’t find the link now, or I would link to it because it really is ridiculous. I swear I’m not making this up!). I revised my shipping costs a couple of months ago, because I realised I was overcharging slightly, I now charge $4 to the UK and $6 elsewhere because that’s what it costs, so I am slightly touchy about this. And it’s not even just that people are trying to make extra money via shipping, it’s only the non-US shipping that is so expensive. It’s like people don’t want my custom!
Anyway, rant over. Sorry ’bout that!
