This is the sort of thing that makes me…

February 24, 2011

…want to learn how to spin my own yarn. Course, it would take years to learn to produce something this gorgeous and I am not usually noted for my boundless patience. I stumbled across this most beautiful handspun yarn while shopping, for what I cannot remember, on etsy the other day:

50/50 cashmere and silk! Greens and pinks and creams. I was so smitten. I immediately put it my favourites and continued shopping for whatever I was looking for, but yet the yarn haunted me–no matter that it was an expensive luxury–no matter I had promised myself I would knit from my stash until I had made a solid dent, but… but… this was handspun–I didn’t have anything quite this decadent… finally I latched on to the thought that it was soon going to be Valentine’s Day and I deserved a little gift, so into the cart it immediately went!

And I don’t have, not remotely, any buyers remorse… a 100% of the profits from the Little Creek Yarn shop go to support Partners in Health. Lynn, the talented spinner, dyer and shop owner, answered my shipping question promptly and was cheerful and chatty. And the yarn… Oh, the yarn… so soft, so shine-y, so amazing…

Now what shall I make? You better believe this baby is all for me and it’s going around my neck – no gift making!! Must now hustle off to Ravelry to find patterns to match.
