Oh, happy yarn day! I just love it when big piles of yarn land on my doorstep. And this time it was indeed a big, big pile!
Check it out…
This is gorgeous Cotton 8 yarn from Dutch yarn brand Scheepjeswol. It’s a 100% cotton, and what I love about it is that it isn’t mercerized! Shiny cotton may be great for some, but it’s just not my cup of tea. This yarn is ridiculously soft, and has a great twist so it doesn’t split. And that’s always a plus :) It works up with a 3mm hook, but I’m taking the lazy way out and using it double stranded with a 6mm hook.
I have 8 colours to work with: brown (659), peach (715), grey (700), mint (664), light blue (622), light pink (654), pink (719) and dark pink (720).
And what might one make with such a ridiculously large stash, one might ask? Well, I’ve already caked some of the skeins, sketched some ideas, and done some work…
Anyone want to take an educated guess as to what I’m making? Hint: it’s a super long-term project since it will take a long time to finish! ;)
Have a great weekend y’all!
