This is Part 2 of my favorite yarn review. I didn't realize how much fun this would be. It has reminded me not only of yarn I love but TBFL projects I might want to dive into.
Once again I have The Quarter Stitch to thank for introducing me to the Prism "Stuff" yarns. I remember clearly the day I first set eyes on Hot Stuff. It was a soft teal and olive and took my breath away. It was knit into an Interlac vest that became magical. Once I saw Stuff, I became a collector. Every time I saw a new color, I bought a skein or two. You could find pink Stuff in my Survivor Shawls and teal and copper Stuff in my giant wall hanging. For those of you unfamiliar with Stuff, it is a skein made up of many different fibers. It may be the original magic ball. I loved getting in my Stuff tub and reminiscing.
My knitting buddy Linda first introduced me to Kauni a beautiful self striping yarn with a very long and gradual color change. Linda was thinking about making a sweater people were talking about on the internet
Here it is. Isn't it gorgeous? I was very resistant to this project because of the small needles, then I saw it. A Faire Isle pattern knit in little squares. I was won over. I will talk more about this sweater in another post. I used Kauni for the Lucy Neatby Bubble scarf.
This was made for Kauni.
Don't you just love the long, gradual color change?
Another of my favorites is Blue Heron. It is my go to yarn for the Olga Jazzy scarf. Once again you can find many pink Blue Heron in the Survivor Shawls and teal in the giant wall hanging. It just adds a little zip and sparkle.
This is called Blossom. Isn't it yummy? It is very soft and very beautiful but kind of makes you look like a teddy bear when you wear. It adds a layer of girth that I definitely don't need. But I still love it.
This is a sweater I started made from Blossom which I have never finished. I probably never will but I still keep my eye open for the perfect pattern and it still is one of my favorites.
I am noticing a trend in my favorite yarns. Color and sparkle. No surprise. I am not even close to being done with my favorite yarns.
