During the week, I received 3 skeins of yummy yarn - look at the gorgeous colors - I just can't believe it !
The bluish one (left pic, top) is a new brand from Chile, Araucania Yarn - a mix of wool & polyamide - not so soft but the color, Ranco Solid, is beautiful. I am test knitting a pair of socks from this yarn as Helen & I are thinking of stocking it on our online store - go & check our store for some great summer specials (sorry, can't resist a little advertising here!)
The other yarn, the pinkish one (left pic, bottom) is from Jolly Jumbucks. Irene, the creative lady behind this store, has been attending our City Nits & brought along some of her hand dyed yarn & asked if I was willing to test knit her yarn - how could I resist such gorgeous colors - of course, I can !
The last one (pic on right) is also hand dyed by another creative lady, Sasha whose creativity stretches to no end. I bought this yarn (undyed) from Bilby Yarn & Sasha kindly agreed to test her dyeing skills & create this fantastic blends of colors - A Big Ball of Fruit Punch - yummy & thanks Sasha!
So, I am currently feasting my eyes on these gorgeous goodies & deciding on the patterns & there's more yarn to come as we have just received our shipment of Dream In Color - go quickly & check on our store as they are selling fast!
