…drum rrrrroll

May 24, 2012

Tiong Bahru has made it to No. 1 on the Ravelry hotties list (hurry – look fast, and don’t blink or you might miss it). Pretty darned fabulous, if you ask.

In the excitement over releasing the new pattern I may have got carried away with acquiring (even) more yarn (big sigh). I couldn’t resist buying a colour named after me, could I? And it is really just my kind of green. Just precisely exactly. Fleegle got my wonky description just right — rather, she dyed something more lovely than I had even known that I wanted, and she didn’t tell me she’d name the colour after me (!). I think it’s a sales trick… A good one — it worked and spread onto several of the other lovely, lovely colours of her new yarn, Gryffin, a merino/cashmere/silk, heavy laceweight at 600 m per 100 g, so practically bulky compared to her other finerthanwhisperfine yarns. I’m looking forward to tearing open the parcel when it arrives here.

Meanwhile I’m posting a photo from the shop (haven’t asked permission, will deny all responsibility if caught):

And it’s not as if I haven’t bought other lovely greens lately, such as these silks from Ripples Crafts in Scotland, a laceweight and a 4ply. The colour is Summer Olives and the lustre is quite fantastic. I can’t wait to knit something for me with the lace. Or with both, actually.

It’s possible that I also somehow got some more green of the last of DyeForYarn‘s limited edition silk/cashmere fine lace.

With all this lovely yarn, I feel another Prize Draw coming on. More about this later.

    Glad you like Griffin! I am plotting Tiong Bahru with Twilight. The beads came in today and I am trying to figure out how to decorate the plain top section :)

      I suppose you could wait for the pattern for Jamie’s Shawl it’s very “decorated” throughout — no plain knitting in sight. ;) But it will be a while. First I’m doing a stole or two. (And I’m winding the deep purple (Wine Dark Sea) Gryffin just now yum!)

    Glad you like the summer olives.
    I’m currently just plotting Tiong Bahru using the pure silk laceweight.
