Chock Full of Plucky Goodness!
I received my Wuthering Heights fingering weight merino/sea cell from Plucky Knitter today! This photo is very light - but the other ones are very dark:

I'll be casting on Sharon Miller's "Bronte" scarf from Rowan's Yorkshire Fable or Yorkshire Tales or whatever the name of that book is. (No, I'm not going to get up and dig out the book; I'm not even going to google for it. I'll leave it to you to do your own research.)
I also got some wool I ordered from 100purewool.com. I'll have to look at the photos of the yarn I ordered, but these colors don't look like what I thought I ordered. They're okay colors, and since I didn't have a specific project in mind, I've no reason for serious complaint. I'll post a wee update tomorrow, at which time we'll all find out exactly how reliable my memory is or isn't. Trust me, there's nothing wrong with knowing exactly how unreliable a source I am.
Here's their yarn:
