YARN!


Ah, at last, some yarny stuff. Colorsong Yarn has Sea Silk for sale in an 'oops' put up, so I ordered some. This is Glacier, next to some Sea Silk that was a yummy Christmas prezzie last year. I bought a pair of Addi Lace needles to try out, and these are great, and the perfect partner for this yarn! I have two more colors on back order (Nova Scotia and Blackberry) and I am anxiously awaiting them. After a little time in swatchland, I've determined that I like the Sea Silk better in lace than stockinette (a lot of people in blogland have the same opinion). That's a good thing, because I don't have a lot, and need to stretch it like taffy!

The first lace I ever did was in Sea Silk. It's dreamy stuff but stinky when wet. I'll be curious to see if Creative Bets can solve that problem. Color is divine! Enjoy!

That is a great colorway, Bets. Bri

That Christmas prezzie might work out great with some Nova Scotia. It's so hard to tell what color the Sea Silk is from a monitor. It always knocks me out, no matter what colorway it is. And my bank account. ;-}

Isn't it great? I ordered more immediately upon finishing my first projet. Wish I'd ordered even more than I did. Not entirely sure of the first colorway, Nova Scotia maybe... I ordered Sangria.
