I have no business buying new yarn. Like many knitters, I have a big stash of yarn from various projects completed, hibernating and plotted. I have enough yarn in my stash to keep me busy for a very, very long time. But where's the fun in that?
Recently, I was going through some stacks of old papers and came across a design for an afghan that I had forgotten all about. I've been wanting to do another afghan lately, this one for the 8-year-old, and this design was just perfect for her (maybe I even created it with her in mind, but I just can't recall). Starting on a new creative endeavor is so invigorating, and with cold weather around the corner, I wanted to get started right away.
I've been wanting to try Quince & Co. yarn for a long time, and it seemed like a perfect fit for my project. I received my big 'ol box of yarn last week. The yarn is sturdy yet soft, and I think it will knit up wonderfully. The colors are beautiful, very true to the pictures on the Quince & Co. website.
Here is my very colorful selection of Chickadee yarn: crocus, poppy, Carrie's yellow, cypress and parsley:
And the more subdued palette of Osprey yarn: bark, glacier, twig and egret:
I'm going to do some marathon knitting for this afghan, so hopefully I can show you the results soon.
