holiday yarn

I was given some yarn over the holidays this year.

Fyberspates Sheila's Sock in mixed purples - photo is colour accurate for once! This is meant for some kind of lush shawl to be determined. Possibly Magrathea, since I've wanted to get started ever since receiving the pattern in a summer swap. Or maybe Pear Drop from Saturday Treat, since I received the book for Christmas as well. Or any one of the many awesome shawl patterns out there that I have admired. I need some more scarf/shawls, definitely.

Fyberspates Scrumptious Aran in Midnight - darker blue than appears in the photo. No immediate project in mind for this one, though I might go with Almond Comfit from Saturday Treat, since this is the recommended yarn. It's a bit dark, though - I can't get that bright red out of my head. We shall see.

Noro Kureyon in colours I would never have picked for myself - I'm really enjoying it knit up, though, so stay tuned for the WIP.


  1. Pretty, pretty yarns! I have Saturday Treat too but haven't made anything yet...

  2. oh one of my favourite things to do is fantasise about different yarn/pattern combinations. I haven't done many of these posts... maybe I should do more, I do so like reading them!!

  3. Each of those are going to make gorgeous knits! Did you buy them online or at a local yarn store with a great selection?

    1. They were gifts, so I don't know exactly where they came from. I'm glad my relations have good taste / know my tastes well!

  4. That Noro Kureyon screams spring to me! It's one of my favorite Noro yarns, hands down. I'll definitely look forward to seeing what you're making with it.

  5. Lucky lady! I especially like the first skein.

  6. The yarns are all yummy, especially the Noro. Such pretty colors! Can't wait to see what you are knitting with it.
