This yarn! This. Yarn.
I got a package on my birthday from my cousin, Natalie, and this yarn was inside. Two hanks of the same yarn, named differently because the Chateau line is dyed, the Chalet line is natural. I have "denim" and "chestnut."
It is technically a bulky weight yarn but because of its chainette construction, it compresses to nothing when I pinch it between my gleeful little fingers. It is the cotton candy of the yarn world. The Bandana Cowl by Purl Bee is the project I have picked for it but I need to locate the right needle and that won't be happening in Farmville. Our next big city trip is Oct 26 so until then I will just dream about this cowl and THIS. YARN.
Julian found this book by Brent and Becky Heath of Brent & Becky's Bulbs. We paid $2 at the Goodwill for it. It has completely captivated my imagination. It is as if I were eight years old again, sitting here with the old Sears catalog making out my list for Christmas. And learning. I am learning so much! Who knew there was so much to know about daffodils?
