Recently I stopped in on my Local Yarn Shop and bought these scrumptious sapphire gems of Louet Euroflax Wet-Spun Linen yarn. There were three x 270 yard skeins of fine sport weight yarn that screamed ‘take me home with you!’ all in unison, and so I did. Actually, had I not had a colossal store credit from a very generous gift, I would never have splurged on these, it was just one of those rare situations.
The honest truth is, I’ve been hankering to try the Euroflax yarn forever, and to try a simple lace stole too, so why not make this my starting point? Knowing full well that I am soon to be knitting up something for Spring Sweaters for my nieces, it will have to be something I can put down for a good long rest and just pick up whenever . . . a ‘take along in my knit-walking bag’ sort of thing, for the months ahead in spring and summer. In fact, I can’t imagine anything nicer to knit in hot weather than deep blue cool tones of linen, in the color of cold mountain lakes, or new jeans.
That’s right, I don’t expect to finish anytime soon, but I can hardly wait to begin those yarn-overs, just wading through row after row of crisp linen. Just something about linen which tickles a spot for me, and I feel though it was a bit of a stash-quest, it will be ready when I decide to cast on.
What a beautiful colour! X
Hello Kelly, yes ,the color is what really made me reach for these. 🙂 xx
Stunning colour – I bet it feels amazing.
I know, isn’t it??? You know how much I’ve become fond of blue lately, well here it is, a legitimate Blue Project ! 🙂 xx
That colour is gorgeous! I reckon that and the texture of the linen will make this perfect for summer knitting 🙂
Just my thinking ! 😉
Dead gorgeous! I love the linen! I don’t know if you would or not, but, I love this yarn. Last I got mine in green, I was told it’s discontinued and was really sad. Good to know it’s still in production. I have a tunic dress on the plate to knit up with this yarn. Have fun. I’m looking forward to your “play” and review ;D
I’m thinking a stitch sampler stole ! 🙂 Maybe with lace edges. 🙂 xx
