Young love

On my way somewhere else this weekend I wandered through my stash and couldn't help noticing some pretty fabulous combinations that escaped me before.

Of course, the overcast weather and consequent bad lighting conditions make it hard to show what I see, but indulge me:

Lanolin-rich wool from the supremely talented Jessie, and luscious merino/mohair from Knitterly Things

Sock club wool ("Snowflake") from Biscotte & Cie and Mirasol Nuna in wintery white

Hand-dyed wool and silk from The Black Lamb, and another skein of sock club wool/silk/bamboo blend from Biscotte & Cie

It's just like young love when you find combinations like this, don't you think? Everything is new, the possibilities are endless, you could stare adoringly at it all for hours and not even notice you missed the last three meals.

Being old and jaded I tried to ignore the yarn, having Other Things to do and a pair of gorgeous socks to leap into, but in the end I couldn't help myself.

I mean, if you're going to sit down with milk and fresh-baked cookies on a grey winter day, you really gotta have something pink to go with, right?
