I Got Some YARN In The Mail!!!
Yep! Here's a pic of my gorgeous yarn that I won from KittyGrrlz !!!! Here are the specs:
~ 58 Yards
~ 2.4 oz.
~ 70 grams
~ 80% merino
~ 20% silk
Overall the yarn has a nice feel to it..the colors are beautiful..reminds me of my dream granite counter tops that I hope to own someday! Flecks of teal, muave, blue,and wine are evenly distributed through out the skein. Also included in the package was a lovely bookmark that is actually a photo print of some of her beautiful yarn...thank you KittyGrrlz for this wonderful yarn and cool bookmark! I have some ideas as to what I want to make from this but until then...MY LIPS ARE SEALED! :)
I bought some gorgeous destash yarn from My Mix Mix that I've had my eye on for quite some time. This yarn is a really beautiful colorway from Gedifra Yarns. This yarn is super soft, not itchy (I ran it across my neck to be sure!) and will be just perfect for a neckwarmer for the Fall/Winter season.
I know EXACTLY what I'm making from this yarn, as most of my yarn projects are born from the texture and quality of the yarn...trust me, it's going to be fabulous!
