Good Ideas

So sometimes I get an idea.  The sort of idea that demands to be swatched with the closest available yarn, even if that yarn is deeply unsuitable for the actual project.

Now, those are both lovely yarns.  But they are not the yarns I want to do this project in.  But…they were close enough to tell me that I wanted to procure more suitable yarns and try again.  And, through the wonders of the internet, I did just that.

That’s Manos Del Uruguay’s Alegria in Nickel (the gray one, but you could probably guess that) and Clara in Miel (the orange one).  And they’re going to play very very very nicely together.  Next up, lots and lots and lots of swatching!
