So, I know you though my mailbox was already just about the happiest place it could be (what with all the delightful Curls 3 yarn coming in).  But no…no it gets better.  The actual pieces themselves have started coming in too!  Take a look at this.

That’s the Cheshire Cat base from Wonderland Yarns / Frabjous Fibers.  The gray bits are Goat’s Beard, and the colorful bits are the Yellow to Fuchsia color morph. And up there is what it looks like before you block it…

And that’s what it looks like after.  See why I’m always (always always always) telling you to block things.  Just look what a difference it makes!  And that’s just with a soak and a pat, no pins to be seen.  Even if you’re scared of blocking, you can manage that (think of it as wash, lay flat to dry…you can do it).

More info on all the Curls 3 saga over here if you want it all in one place!

Good Mail (really good!)

Don’t worry…there totally are more yarns for Curls 3…I’ve just been so busy swatching them that I’ve been remiss in showing them off to you.  Let’s fix that!

This set is Miss Babs’ Sojurn base in their German Waterways colorway.  It’s made of angel wings and clouds and unicorn eyelashes as far as I can tell (or, possibly the 65% cashmere, 30% silk they list on the tag…but I think unicorn eyelashes explains the softness better).  And yes, yes it is an indulgent yarn…but really you deserve a little indulgence.  I know you do.

And this is a lovely combo from Wonderland Yarns / Frabjous Fibers.  The base is Cheshire Cat, and the gray one is Goat’s Beard, and the colorful one is the Yellow to Fuchsia color morph.  Wonderland does really really really nifty mini skin packs.  They have both what I think of as sets (where there are different colors but someone with better color sense than me has put them together so you know they’ll work) and gradients (where you move from a lighter to a darker shade of the same color) and they’re all amazing (erm…plus they also have a So Fond of Rainbows 20 skein pack that one of these days I simply WILL succumb and own…because wow).

If you want to check back in on all the Curls 3 yarns to date, you can find them over here, and wow is this book going to be fun!
