Just In Case You Wondered..
The colorway is called “Moss,” but I don’t think that quite captures the beautiful shading variations of color. Imagine this.
You are walking through the forest, beside a quiet stream. You come to a perfect mossy bank, and dancing sunbeams are filtering through the canopy of an old oak tree. The sunlight on the moss, the deeper green of the leaves, the shifting green shadows of the forest? All those colors are in this yarn. I love it desperately, so much so that I have to design something just for it. No ready-made pattern will do, it needs something all its own. I’m going to post more pictures, just because it’s beautiful, and I can.
And in the skein too? Okay, we can do that 😛
I can’t wait to actually get designing. I have ideas, and I’m pretty sure I know what stitch patterns I’m going to use, but the full concept still eludes me. It needs to be perfect for this lovely yarn.
And now, just to help you start the week off right, here is a picture I took the other day. I call it “Still Life of Greg, with Yarn.”
He was checking his email, and I was bored, so I started placing my handspun yarn on him, thinking that eventually he would notice or object. He noticed immediately, but I think it says a great deal about our friendship that he unhurriedly finished the email he was reading, nonchalantly turned to me (without disturbing the skein of yarn that I had balanced on his head) and asked, “What are you doing?” to which I replied, (of course) “Putting yarn on you.” “Oh. Okay.” he responded, then went back to what he was doing.
He has learned my ways. It is best not to question.
