I love ordering yarn. I always get such a surprise when it arrives. You don't get to touch it or really see it until you open the box. Such was the case with this funky stuff.
I purchased it from lovecrochet.com for $1.80 per skein. I bought several skeins. I thought they would make cute ear warmers, hats and scarves. Can't wait to try it -- but first I am going to finish up all those WIPs that are sticking around this house. I keep finding MORE and MORE!
I finished a shawl and absolutely love it. I used KnitPicks Hawthorne Kettle Dyed yarn and it was amazing to work with. It blocked HUGE! Next time I don't think I'll block it as much. It will make a perfect gift but is kind of large for me -- cause I'm so darn short.
It looks more burgundy or brown than it really is -- it's a lovely dark purple with lighter shades here and there. I'll have to take it outside and get a better picture of it. I had enough of it left to make a slouch hat and scarf for a swap I'm in. It's really awesome stuff. I absolutely love working with it.
