Something wicked this way comes..........



Kirsty dyed some of this Vintage Floral for me and is also sending me the Purple peace and Red Bark

I can't get enough of this yarn, It and Dee's Eva and Sophia are my favourite yarns at the moment :)

Oooh Gilraen its gorgeous! I might be what I was looking for, for my mum's shawl. Did Kirsty dye it especially for you? And have you knitted any up yet? Sorry for all the questions :-)

Piglottie it is a regular yarn but she did dye it for me. Here is a picture of it knitted by Roobeedoo. Kirsty is great, she will dye it for you I'm sure if you ask :)

I hope it's what you are looking for, you have been looking for some time. :)

Thanks so much Gil! Its exactly what I'm looking for - I knew it was a case of "I would know it when I saw it". Off to email Kirsty now and thanks again.

The colours in that yarn are just fantastic. Looks like a joy to knit.

And the sock yarn in the previous post is gorgeous too! Hope the socks are going well - I have just completed my first pair ever, and I'm going to have to knit another pair soon so they can go in the wash!

Piglottie I'm delighted to help :)

You will be delighted with it, so soft, colours are amazing and the smell is lovely too. :)

Jacquie I've done a little more but I took today off to do housework, it was depressing me and my 3 'boys' were making it worse! So once it's clean and tidy I can sit and relax and do some knitting, hurrah! :)

I can see why Piglottie wants this one!!! - The colours are just so subtle without being wishy-washy. It's really beautiful!
