Wussypillows is such an addictive knit. I’m flying through 16-row repeats and it so gratifying to whip up a project that is so beautiful and so quick. I keep trying it on, so pleased with my progress.
I love how the stitch pattern looks like pussywillows. The entire time I can’t help but think, how would this look in a natural color? Wouldn’t the stitch pattern look so elegant? Wouldn’t it look stunning in Bare Naked Wool breakfast blend? It’s the yarn we introduced to club members in the April 2012 Bare Naked Knitspot shipment
and this luxury yarn will be available to the public at the end of the month. That’s right, it’s Knitspot’s first luxury blend in a line of custom artisan yarns. This yarn was a hit with clubbies and soon we’ll have it in five natural colors! Though the exclusive pattern was Waffle Creams,
a lot of members made other projects with the club yarn.
and Waffle Creams with her double dip. judetha knit Les Abeilles (her rav project page), a perfect little luxury shawlette. Months ago, Anne and Cookie also knit a Les Abeilles in the club yarn for Alice when she had her baby. What a nice new mommy gift!
I’ve had Bare Naked on the brain for a couple months now and I was finally allowed to let out a little skinny on Knitspot’s very own yarn line on ravelry here. It’s been so exciting to not keep this SUPER FUN secret any longer and the excitement is just buzzing in the thread. Knitters are so excited that the exclusive club yarn will be available at the end of January. So many people coveted the yarn; once clubbies knit with it they wanted more. Now they’ll be able to get their hands on as much as they want and play with all the colors.
Last week David calmed my antsy butt by sending me the new DK yarn. I tore open the package and immediately wound it. I wasn’t allowed to show a picture, so I left the ravelry thread with this teaser photo
with the words, ” i feel like i’m showing you a package of baked goods i gobbled up, before i could show off how delicious they were. all i have left to show is the licked clean wrapper. ha ha” Can’t you feel my excitement?
Last night on the phone Anne said, “why don’t you show your yarn on the blog.” I was thrilled and I new all of you would be too. Here it is…
in all its glory. Now I know it’s no Anne or David photo, but can’t you see how lush and gorgeous this blend of alpaca and merino is? I cast on the Squeeze Me infinity cowl with it, but my wheels keep turning dreaming of other projects this would be perfect for. Possibly
and don’t even get me started on the numerous projects I could do with the fingering weight! Yep, that’s right. Bare Naked on the brain. Anyone else in this predicament?
