A few weeks ago a yarn sample turned up in the mail that I thought Lannie would love. I was right!
Not only did Lannie love the colour,
it matched her manicure (and her coat!)
I looked it up and this colour: Crush, from Twisted Fiber Art, is not currently in production. Cue the sads.
But then this other sample came in the mail, from the current club, which means I could order it if I want when the club is done.
Rapunzel, also from Twisted. And it's even got purple in it.
In related news, Twisted is discontinuing some yarns and fibers in just a few weeks, on July 1. Normally this sort of thing doesn't affect me because I see it as Less Temptation. But this time: ow. Duchess is going - the DK weight superwash wool I've used for ever so many hats and cowls and socks. And my favourite blue-faced leicester roving that is so wonderful to spin. And two other rovings I like a lot as well. So instead of being Less Temptation to buy yarn, this plus the purple/pink Rapunzel is making me think More. (more more more more more!)
So, if I knit something for Lannie anytime soon, it will probably not be a surprise.
(yes, I know it is ridiculous to think of buying even more yarn. totally, utterly ridiculous. go have a good day chuckling about how ridiculous I am, if only to cover the sound of yarn purchasing.)
