Sometimes, when you’re aimlessly clicking and scrolling around on Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook (you know what I’m talking about!), you come across something that almost stops your heart; something so special that you just can’t resist, something that really makes your heart sing. And a few weeks ago, that happened to me. Twice. Okay, three times ;)
There was just something about it that I simply couldn’t resist! This is raw pure silk in a fine 4-ply, hand dyed in the most gorgeous colour scheme. I ordered it right after I spotted it, and since it had to come from the UK, it arrived the next week! :)
Yum! You have no idea what this yarn feels like but believe me, as soon as your crafter’s hands touch this lovely fibre, you’ll be aching to make something with it!
So I got my two best friends out, Mr. Swift and Mr. Winder…
And turned the two hanks into two adorable yarn cakes!
I have no idea what I’m going to make with it yet, but what I do know is that it has to become something wearable. Something suited for summer, something I can wrap myself in; if you have any suggestions or know the perfect pattern for this silk yarn, let me know in the comments! :)
There will be another blog post about new yarn day later this week, part II! Stay tuned!
