Yarn Loveliness



I know that as knitters, we have all seen pretty yarn before... 
But seriously now, have you ever seen a skein as pretty as this?


I don't know if it's the depth of color, the blended tones or the fact that this is my favorite color green, but I am completely in love with this skein of Pigeonroof Studios Cassiopeia DK in Juniper.




I acquired this skein (among others) from Krista at the Pigeonroof Studios booth at Stitches West.
I have been staring at it ever since. 



I know that I've said this before.. about other yarns.. but this might be my new favorite.

This texture. This colorway. The fact that it is an insanely indulgent blend of merino, cashmere and silk... 
I just love it.

I've wound it up and it's going on my needles right now. 
I need to find the perfect project to showcase it. 
I'll let you know what I come up with when I've figured that out.

I love Pigeon Roof Studio yarns.There are so many yarns on Etsy it is such a hard task to choose.I can see that PRS has many customers.I just checked the site after reading your comment.

That yarn is so YOU!

That yarn has incredible depth of color and sheen. I don't envy you for the choice you have to make about what it'll become but I'm sure I'll covet whatever the finished object.

Good for you! You deserve to make something fun and for yourself!!! Enjoy the beautiful yarn!

Sometimes I buy a skein of yarn that I love so much, that I keep it just to take out now and then and look at and cherish. Sort of like an art object. Weirdly enough, I feel like I might 'ruin' it if I knit it into something, because it's already perfect the way it is. Crazy, hunh?

It feels so good to have a nice skein of yarn to look at, smile to, and loooove!

That is beautiful. I feel similarly about a skein of her yarn I bought at Stitches in the 'dragon' colorway. If only there were more hours in the day...

Ann said...

Oh my, it's even prettier wound up. Or maybe not so much prettier as more potent with possibilities! BTW, I'm waring my favorite combo of colors: green & purple!

I really like Pigeon Roof Studios. I love her fiber even more than her yarns but I need to learn to spin.

Kathy said...

I forced myself to walk away from Pigeonroof as I was so far out of budget. Of course, that is much easier since they are local. :~D
