Some Yarn-y Goodness

It's no secret that I love yarn. My stash bears testament to this fact, as do the numerous hours I spend each week looking for good deals on yarn. I recently made some lovely yarn purchases and I couldn't wait to share it with you all. I bought some of them from WEBS and others from some lovely fellow knitters on Ravelry. So here they are. I'll try to put the yarns next to the pattern I have in mind for them. Let's see how this goes.

The first up is the Mirasol Tupa yarn in Purple, which I hope to use for the Chiton Pullover by Melissa Wehrle. I love the pattern style, and I'm ready to knit a real clothing item for myself. I'm terrible at sewing and this pattern is knit in the round with no seaming required, so I think I actually might end up making the blouse. :)



I've been meaning to try out Berroco Vintage yarn, and so when my friend Elf placed an order for my Fall Breeze Shawl, I thought "Why not"? So here is some Berroco Vintage in Buttercream (yum yum!), and a picture of the Fall Breeze Shawl that I designed. Woo-hoo!




I also got some more Manos del Uruguay Wool Classica to make more versions of my Red Sheila scarf. The colorways are Mermaid and Caribe. I've already started knitting a sample in the Mermaid colorway. It's so beautiful.





Next is some luscious Malabrigo lace in Purple Mystery, which I'm planning to use for Annis by Susanna IC, for a certain someone with initials KB. I want it to be a surprise.



Hold on, hold on. Just two more. I have another Malabrigo lace yarn in the Cactus Flower colorway, which I can't wait to use for the Citron pattern by Hilary Smith Callis.



And finally, I have some Jaggerspun Zephyr, which is 50% wool, 50% silk in their Admiral Blue colorway. This yarn will make a lovely Geodesic Cardigan, by Connie Chang Chinchio. 

     


I hope you enjoyed my yarn tales as much as I did. Next week, hopefully the finished Fallberry Mitts. :)

PS: Just for fun, here's some Berroco Vintage in Sunny colorway for my friend Zeina Newman. :)
