Yarn Pr0n Friday: Twizzle Edition

Remember I said there were a few other yummy options at the Woolly Lamb in East Aurora, N.Y., after our field trip there on Tuesday? Well, this jumped into my hands and stuck:

Meet “Twizzle” from Mountain Colors in the Wilderness colorway. It appears to be worsted weight or a tiny bit lighter. Label suggests 4-5 sts/inch on a 4-6 needle.

Fiber content is 85% merino and 15% silk. It is incredibly wonderfully soft and I can’t wait to do something with it. It's so amazingly soft and pretty that there was no way I was leaving this stuff in the store, no matter what.

Of course, there are problems with this plan. First and foremost, they only had four skeins of the stuff. I bought it all, but that still means that I only have 1,000 yards. Definitely not enough for a sweater unless I decide to starve myself into a skeleton (not gonna happen)

So if anyone has ANY ideas as to what this stuff can be when it grows up, I’m all ears!

Happy Friday! Gotta get cracking on the packing up and organizing. I’m leaving for Pittsburgh today. The fact that I’m just going to be gone for about 48 hours usually means that I can leave a semi-mess, but we’re on the Cottage Tour on Sunday, which means that the place has to be head-to-toe spotless and EVERYTHING has to be put away.

Remember yesterday’s sweatshop photo. Remember that I’m a slob. Let that sink in … don’t you envy my day now? (ugh!!!) Happy Friday, everyone!

Ummm! Eye Candy! Is there enough for some kind of a drop stitch shawl to show off all of the pretty colors?

Gorgeous yarn! What about a shrug?

Pretty pretty! Shawl--maybe a Clapotis, now that the pattern has become a classic? Something relatively simple,so the yarn doesn't get lost. Or a vest. Now that you're back in Weather Country you can actually use an extra layer!
