I’m almost as excited about this new yarn as I am about the eggs. *Almost*
It is Stylecraft Special DK that I ordered from Deramores in the UK. Free shipping and only took a week to get here! It is acrylic yarn, and such great colors. I was inspired by all the wonderful color over on Lucy’s blog at Attic24. Deramores also has a coupon that they advertise on Ravelry for 10% off. Great service and I was so excited to open the package!
They sell it as a special colour pack – specifically associated with some of Lucy’s past posts. The colors include the following.
From the top two/left: Shrimp, Aspen. 2nd from top row: Plum, Lipstick, Pomegranate, Lavender. Third row from top: Spring Green, Meadow, Aster, Saffron, Magenta. And the bottom row: Clematis, Cloud Blue, Sherbet, Fondant, Wisteria and Turquoise.
I’m going to have to double-check these colors in the daylight. It’s hard to tell here in my nighttime office! Funny how that is. I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to make with it all, but I had some thoughts of a granny stripe blanket or pillow cover. Then I thought that maybe I’d cover my rectangular ottoman with it. But then I came across this great little cover for a short round footstool from the Crochet with Raymond blog in a mandala shape, and I’ve decided that I need to make it! I love it! Once I make the cover, Hubby is going to make a footstool that will fit it. I’m thinking a short, round, three or four legged stool. We’ll see how it all comes out. I hope to get started with it this weekend. I’m trying to finish one other project first.
