Seriously Yummy yarns
MMMMMMM...I unpacked some seriously yummy yarns from New Zealand today. This naturally colored oatmeal wool is asking to be an Aran or Gansey, I just will have to listen to hear exactly what! And I got some soft Possum and Merino blend yarn that will tell me what it needs and wants to be later on, I have 8 colors and they're so very soft. But my big question is: What do these two beauties want to be? If they were reskeined in a smaller skein size, they'd come out looking like Koigu...those sneeky Canadians make their yarn look random just by using a different skein size than the one that they used when they dyed the yarn. But that's ok, I still love it! This is really beautiful and I want to make something special from it so I'll even take suggestions! My first thought was a lacy stole or shawl, but I just don't know. I have enough to do pretty much anything. Any thoughts?
