Today's Swatching


You may remember me mentioning this gorgeous yarn I found at Stitches West this past February. This is Spincycle Yarns Dyed in the Wool and its AMAZING.

It has the look of a handspun, but is actually a lovely commercially spun yarn with gradient color changes. 
It is extremely addicting to work with.



Today I have been playing around with this gorgeous yarn for a new leafy design for Botanical Knits 2.



I just want to keep knitting and knitting to see what color is coming next.

Wow...that looks like the type of knit that would speed by because you need to get to the next colour/see how the pattern shapes up!

I can't wait to see your design. I love yarn like that. Noro always does that to me. You knit a bit and then can't stop because you want to see the next color. It makes me crazy but in a very good way!

Ooh, that looks so amazing! I love the look and feel of handspun, but have zero desire to actually spin.
