I mentioned then that I had just signed up for the 2012 Year in Color Club with Tanis Fiber Arts and ever since, I've been thinking about what new yarn I would be introduced to in the new year. Well, my gorgeous skein arrived last night (thank you, Mr. Mailman) all the way from Canada and I couldn't be happier!
This is a superwash merino in a fingering weight and the colorway is stunning. Tanis chose the perfect name for this color, and I'm really excited to wind it up into a cake and cast on. It came with an original pattern by Hannah Fettig of Knitbot fame, and while I've made a very loose promise not to have too many WIPs on my needles, I don't think this one can wait.
Aren't the subtle changes in tone incredible? So, once again, my mailman is my friend -- I only hope he doesn't think he needs to do an intervention with me about my stash.
