Weekend Favorites 12/4: Yarn Spam

Today I'd like to share with you a few of my favorite yarns.  Well, let me amend that just a little.  I haven't tried  all these yarns, but would certainly love the opportunity.   Most of these yarns are variegated and they're just LOVELY!  With that said here are some of my favorites!

 Sleeping Beauty
 Early Grey
 Forget Me Not
Katie has some beautiful yarn!  Her colorways are so diverse and inspirational.  Usually, I'm drawn to blues and greens and dark colors.  But I can't help but love these colorways above.  They include Sleeping Beauty, Whisper, Earl Grey, Forget Me Not and Belle.

I just recently ordered this yarn in Adobe for a Christmas project.  The colors blend so beautifully and this yarn is incredibly soft.  This yarn is kettle dyed, 30% silk, 70% Merino Extrafine Wool.   It glides through my fingers and has a luster to it that will make this project just right.  I'm not always a fan of variegated yarns when they're knit up, but this is looking pretty great so far!

 Dorian Gray
Again, look at these beautiful colorways!  If I were one to knit socks...well...let's just say my stash would me much larger! :)

  1. Lovely stuff! I knit a scarf years ago with the Adobe Manos and it so nice to work with. Can't wait to see your project!
