Last week, an unexpected gift arrived from a new yarn fairy in Virginia! Somehow I complete forgot that Karen and I had chatted about this a few months ago.
Oooooh! Surprise packages can hold such wonderful things,
like three fun variegated colorways! I don’t think I’ve ever worked with this particular camouflage yarn before. . . RHSS ‘Desert Camo’, but then again, I didn’t remember that a box of yarn was coming, so who knows?! lol
I’m definitely familiar with ‘Grape Fizz’ though, having gotten some, this summer, from Sandi of MD, – Oh, together that makes three skeins, which just sparked a new idea for a future blanket. yippee! – And I’m sure that RHSS ‘Macaw’ is a new-to-me colorway. – Thanks Karen, for taking the time to identify every yarn without a label. My inquisitive readers like to know! –
Awwww. There’s a pristine Pooh Bear tucked among the skeins, a friendly buddy for some young foster child.
Group #1 includes: natura deluxe acrylic ‘Azalea’,, RH Classic ‘White’, ‘Skipper Blue’, and ‘Paddy Green’, Moon Glo ‘Bright Yellow’, some grey, and Loops and Threads’ Impeccable ”Lavender’
Group #2: Red Heart With Love ‘Black’, 8 oz. skeins of RHSS ‘Aran’ and ”Light Coral’, – That’s right, Eight-Ounces. That and the $2.29 price tag give you some idea of how long this yarn was lovingly stashed by Karen’s friend’s aunt. And isn’t it interesting how yarn can travel? . . . from aunt, to friend, to Karen, to me! – and there’s some RHSS ‘Vibrant Orange’ too.
Lastly. . . Waverly Bernat’s ‘Bark’, and RH Shimmer, ‘Turquoise’, with a variegated, Impeccable ‘Folklore’. – Here’s a page of finished ‘Folklore’ crochet projects, if you’d like to see how it looks worked up. – I can imagine these colors mixed together in a couple of boy ripples.
Then again, I’ll probably replace the Shimmer with RHSS ‘Turquoise’ as this subtly sparkled yarn is better suited to a girly ripple.
Thank you so much Karen for collecting all of this lovely yarn, and Pooh, for me. More yarn means more ripples for the kids!
P.S. I just realized that I didn’t mention that ball of light burgundy, over on the right edge. I love in-between colors like this, kind of burgundy/kind of rust! It’s Bernat Waverly ‘Incense’ (discontinued).
How wonderful and those kids are in for some very pretty blankies!
Don’t know whether they’ll come out very pretty, or not, but the foster kids are definitely in for more blankies. . .
Yay! for yarn fairies!!
