Eye-candy Friday

When Madeline Tosh sent my Sport shipment for the Yarn Club, they sent me the same colourway twice. It was Tweed, which is the natural tone shipment. So instead of 2 skeins of two different colourways, I got 4 skeins of the same. But the ever-efficient April was quick in correcting that and sent me the right colourway asap.  Thanks, April!

This came into the office the other day and I could not have been happier with this colour. I love blue, but this variegated blue with hues of indigo, lilac and pink is just beautiful.

Around the same time, I received yarn from Denmark, thanks to dear Dieuwke who offered to buy these for us. It was on sale and I have seen the yarn before because she was working on a halter top when we first met her. It’s a beautiful soft yarn which has a lovely drape on the finished garment. I chose two colours, 10 skeins of each. This is Sart Rosa, a nice pink shade, not too bright, not too pale, just enough pink.

The other is a beige colour, which I think would make a nice neutral top. I’m thinking about knitting a seamless Katrina Ballerina Lace Layering Cardigan with this, for me. I will need to first work on the math then knit a gauge swatch to make sure this will fly since the pattern calls for worsted.

One last glimpse of the Avonlea then before I go and enjoy my weekend. Wouldn’t this be awesome as a shawl?
