It’s yarn day! 😀 I knew what this parcel would contain as it’s the rules that we send 100gms of new yarn to our victims;
I couldn’t get it out of it’s packaging quickly enough!
Isn’t it lovely?! It’s Hand dyed BFL in Chrysanthemum and it’s so beautifully soft. I’ve been coveting some BFL on Etsy for a while now, but not actually bought myself any because I was waiting until I become a better knitter (might never happen let’s face it). I love the colour too, in natural day light (what little we have of that today) it looks like the sweets ‘Fruit Salad’s, but in the artificial light, it looks very orange. It’s ace, what else is there to say?
It’s also quite appropriate as this year I have committed to knitting my first pair of socks (I shan’t use this though through fear of ruining it while I learn). I am visiting my friend Mimi in a few weeks, and she will be teaching me ( shh though, I haven’t told her yet).
Pattern update; I don’t really have one today I’m afraid, it’s been a busy day but I plan to work on it some more tomorrow.
Hmm, you can’t really see it from that photograph, but this yarn is in beautiful Jewel colours. The areas that look blue are more of a green. I tried to take it in as much natural light as possible, hence the window behind my hand, but you can also see the rain and guess the dullness outside that I was battling with. Bottom line – it is lovely, even if I did fasten it up after a couple of glasses of wine…
Oh, also number two son got my soap open! I can’t put my finger on what I smells of, but it’s like old fashioned soap – smells of clean and grannies (in a good way!).
I can’t believe it’s my last parcel tomorrow, I won’t know what to do without my little gifts to open.
