Eye-candy Friday

You’d think that after being a resident on the Emirates for the past 17 years I would know my way around a spice market. Or at least have been to one. Sadly, no. I have passed them by while sitting on a bus or making our way elsewhere, but I have never been inside a spice market.

I reckon they look like this, but could be a bit more Middle Eastern-y. And does this give you a hint as to this week’s eye-candy?

I could be a bit more subtle but I don’t know how. Yes, it’s the second skein of Wollmeise Twin that I snagged from The Loopy Ewe. Spice Market. Mmmmm. I almost wound this to knit my pair of Nutkins for the SSSPSC but no, I had my heart set on knitting them with Sundara Sock Yarn.

This might end up as a Stripe Study Shawl by Veera Välimäki paired with a skein of Pistache. I still need to take the skeins out and put them side by side to see if the colours work.

It’s prettier in person. 🙂

  1. That yarn is beautiful and the pattern you have in mind is lovely. And don’t feel bad about missing the spice markets, we all tend to do that; think “it will be there, I’ll stop next time”. Discovering what’s in our own backyards is sometimes a good idea. So what are you cooking with all your new spices???
