#8 – A Long Time Coming

I have finally gotten around to using this pretty yarn combo, which I put together last August on the day Lisa’s Big box of yarn arrived.

579 3 yarnsThe RHSS ‘Amethyst’ and ‘Real Teal’ that she sent me beautifully match the variegated, a long time resident of my charity stash.

I just added a little of Vanna’s Choice ‘Wild Berry’ (also from Lisa) and some black to make . . .

Northern Lights

631 NLT full viewVery pretty, IMHO, but not very accurate – see the yarn photo above for real colors.

I have enough of the variegated left to accent one or two more ripples! cool.

    A stunner even without the colors being true. Snow and overcast really does a number on changing the color tone. You did good.

  2. Instead of the Northern Light, I think of fine wine!

  3. I have a blanket in this color scheme too!! 🙂 I actually had a question for you. Are you low on any particular color right now?

    • Our ‘twin’ blankets are proof that great minds think alike! lol

      re: current color needs – I’m not sure.
      I haven’t integrated last Friday’s yarn into the charity stash yet and another box arrived today! I’ll get back to you with an answer ASAP.
