Yarn Scapes

jenjoycedesign©Rowan Felted TweedI am loving the new year so far, and the varied yarn-scape through which I am setting out to wander indulgently. Rowan greets me on this sunny January day, a nice tall stack of Felted Tweed, just look how substantial and tasteful the three tweedy colors look ! I just can’t wait to begin throwing stitches. Yarn tasting of the classic (though often spendy) yarn  is one of my New Year resolutions by the way, this is my first purchase of Rowan yarns, and I want to well-familiarize myself with their yarns in 2015.  Add Isager as one of the LYS lines, and a few local boutique yarns.

And only just days ago I had undertaken a very fastidious project, a rather inventive rendition of Una Cosettina Mitts.  With a photographic opportunity ahead (tomorrow) I hurried through the knitting and finished in two days,  involving these two yarns ; Isager Alpaca-Merino 2, and Shibui Silk Cloud…

alpaca & silk & wool mitts for Natalie

I am quite pleased with them, and so will Miss Fifteen I am certain.

((  Warning: Half mitts made of dangerously fuzzy & soft yarns,

one could trip & injure themselves from the distraction of wearing them. ))

Tomorrow morning, my nieces and I have a little photo shoot for their knitted holiday bounty,

so watch this space!
