Okay so I know I have been on and on about this yarn but seriously it’s the bomb!! It’s on my mind today because there’s loads of it drying in the barn.
And yes…it’s Ripple!! Look at that!! Click on the photo to make it bigger and look at all of that color and textural wooly wonder. Just stunning!! Every time one of us walks by the skeins drying we stop and pet and oogle and some of us ( and we all know who) even bury their faces in it for a good wool whiff.
One of you you creative souls ( you know who you are ) is making blankets ( a lot of them) with our Ripple friend so we are having a good dye time! And now I totally want to knit a blanket for myself our of some of our moon colors from this year. Wouldn’t that be stunning?!! It’s super cold so what better time to knit a warm, soft and cozy blanket? And soon it is January, where we knit for ourselves, is quickly approaching so look at that.
Maybe we should have a January BKAL Blanket Knit-along. What do you think?
Anyway…Ripple is stunning and I am feeling blessed and pretty thrilled that I have a nice big stash of it in the dye barn! lol
Thanks to our lovely Karen our yarn sat in the same room this week with Natalie Chanin ( Alabama Chanin) so… that happened!!
It’s Saturday morning and I have 2 sets of dyer’s notes to get out along with my other weekend catch-up tasks. So my fiber loving friends I am off to the barn to take yarn pics and then it’s all the writing! I’m gonna make a bunch of tea and build a fire in the fireplace and curl up with my laptop and write all about color, yarn, knitting, socks and… .
Have a wonderful weekend!
