I like Lopi. After I started the Flower Power series of slippers, my like has been transformed into lust bordering on obsession.
As the Lopi is washed and felts, it is transformed into a miracle fabric, so incredibly touchable, yet infinitely durable. It sounds cliché, but I think I am in love.
When Ram Wools had their anniversary sale, Lopi at 25% off seemed too good to pass up.
Observe the damage:
That's 20 skeins of Lopi, dear friends. Waiting to be transformed into more little slippers. That means 480 little !@#$ing flowers to crochet, but who's counting? I'm in love, remember?
These 4 skeins of black Lopi are going to be transformed into a surprise:
I've got high hopes for this Lopi - The Selfish Knitter strikes again - it's all about ME ME ME! I just need to do a bit of math, and we're off to the races...I CAN'T WAIT!!!
And speaking of selfish knitter, observe yet more damage:
20 skeins of Acorn Létt Lopi. I am trying to redeem myself for The Wrapigan Disaster, a story I will share at a future date, to make this:
I love this wool! Wholly and unconditionally! Little bits of vegetable matter that get stuck into your skin as you knit I can overlook, it's good, all good...I can't get enough of it!
Probably by the time I am done with the slippers and the above cardigan, I'll have to enter Lopi Rehab.
Hi. My name is Ann and I am a Lopiholic.
