Yeah, well that "something right" was not tempting fate. So much for that. Happily, I am on the mend and will refrain from commenting on how I haven't sprained my ankle this year either.
Monday saw the arrival of some beautiful yarn from Zen Yarn Garden, an Ontario dyer specializing in handpainted colourways and gorgeous yarns. I received some of the scrumptious Serenity 20 (a sock yarn composed of 70% superwash merino, 20% cashmere and 10% nylon) in "Black Lilac" from my mother for Christmas, and had to order more! I now own a yummy hank in "Melonberry", as well as Serenity Sock (same content as the Serenity 20, but with 10% cashmere) in "Bare".
Now, I thought Malabrigo yielded luxurious mittens. Serenity blows Malabrigo out of the water. The cashmere and soft superwash creates an incredibly smooth, soft fabric with excellent stitch definition and no pilling. And the colours? YUM. I think I may be in love (sorry, over-the-knee boots, the previous object of my affections!).
