I’ve been trying to capture the color of this yarn for a couple of weeks now — and though I don’t think I’ve succeeded, I’m conceding. This will have to do. It’s Brooklyn Handspun Signature Superwash Merino in the color “Marigold.” Yowza.
All I did was donate to Claudia’s MS ride, and I won 480 yards of fingering weight yarn! Thank you Claudia! Congratulations on your successful ride!
That brings me to another donation/raffle prize opportunity. Purlewe is riding today in the American Cancer Society’s Bike-a-Thon. Won’t you go on over and click on her link to donate? I’m going to provide some incentive: a luscious skein or two of Sundara Sock Yarn will be added to her prize stash. If Anj can bike 69 miles, I can help out a little.
It won’t be Blue Grape Hyacinth yarn, though. That’s already on the needles. I finished the first sock a few minutes ago and cast on for the second. The rest of my knitting time today will be spent weaving in blanket ends. I promise.
