The Philosopher's friend G recently went on holiday to Ireland. He's seen me knitting quite a lot; he was one of the first to see the Rock/Paper/Scissors bag and to geek out over the equations inside.
I was really touched when he presented me with some yarn from "the least touristy place I could find." I'm not sure what touristy yarn looks like in Ireland, but this is lovely wool.
100% pure new wool from Kerry Woollen Mills. It's Aran weight, 200g in the Green Fleck colorway.
I have no idea what I'll do with it yet. It's not super soft, but it will be dense and warm. I'm sure Ravelry will have some options for me. For now, it's just keeping me company.
