Good Mail (yes, more!)

This really is one of the most enjoyable parts of any book…the yarn shower that comes at the beginning…

Because really, how could you not love finding that in your mailbox?  That’s the Magnificent DK base from Knit Circus in their Brass and Steam colorway, with an extra skein of the yellow that comes at the end (the KC folks are super flexible and will totally help you get the amount/color of yarn you need for whatever scheme you’ve cooked up!).

Or this…it’s just pretty much going to make your day no matter what.  I swear it just about glows!  It’s Daintree by Skein in the color Sea View (I love their colors, I used their yarn in Calcareous and was helplessly smitten).

You can see all the yarns for this book over here, and I swear it’s just about the most colorful bunch of yarns I’ve ever played with…this is going to be so much fun!

Good Mail (again!)

The yarn for Curls 3 keeps coming, and I swear I’m starting to worry the postman…all that squealing and jumping around is bound to scare the nice man.

But really, can you blame me?  Wouldn’t you make a bit of a scene if this showed up in your mailbox? That’s gradient set in Lilt Sock by Trillium Fibres in the color mallow (and I’m totally digging that base…it’s just delightful).

Or this? That’s Squish DK by Spun Right Round in the color Frost (you already know I love them…I used the same base for Circumvolute and for that purple hat I’m writing up).

I really can’t be expected to remain calm and reserved in the face of such delightful stuff…I’m only human!

Oh, and if you want to see all the yarns that are planned for this one, you can do that here…it’s shaping up to be a pretty amazing bunch!

Good Mail

One of the many lovely things about this job is all the good mail it generates.  There are few things more fun to find in the mailbox than some yummy yarn.  And when it’s book yarn selecting time, you get a lot of good yarn in the mail!

That’s Merino DK by Hedgehog Fibres in the color Construct.

And that’s Meridian by Seven Sisters Arts in the color Silk Road (the bundle) and Citron (the big skein).

They’re both for Curls 3, which will be mostly speckles and gradients.  I’m having so much fun tracking down fabulous yarns, and have a bunch of them sorted out, but if you’ve got any favorite speckles or gradients, I’d love to know about them.  It helps if they’re a big enough company to be carried in yarn stores and if they do repeatable colorways, but there’s a bit of flexibility for just the right yarn!
