For those of you who do not know me, I must confess that I have earned several... shall we call them"nicknames" in my knitting career. Here are a few of them:
- Yarn Snob
- Yarn Pusher
- Yarn addict
- Yarn Ho
So you can imagine my extreme excitement upon being notified that I was the winner of this GLORIOUS, deep red skein of "Breathless" by Shalimar Yarns and believe me, I have been "Breathless" with anticipation ever since! Is it as beautiful as the photograph? What is the texture like? Is it as soft as I imagine? What shall I make?? (gasp, pant, drool!).
Yesterdays mail arrived with its precious cargo and I am happy to announce that this skein, "American Beauty" is everything I'd hoped for!
- The color: The exact shade of "L.O.V.E".
- The texture: Smooooooooth.
- Is it Soft: Oh Yeah!
- What shall I make: What shall I make?? A shawl, a cowl, fingerless gloves?? With this kind of yardage (420 yards) I could make a hat and fingerless gloves........
