This lovely temptation is Classic Merino Superwash Sport by Knitting Notions in the color Dark Rose. My camera decided to lie the day I took this picture. The yarn is actually a bit darker and, well, rosier, in person – more pink and less red.
Knitting Notions shows at several of the fiber events in my area, and I’ve been lucky enough to see all of Catherine’s yarns in person. Her booth is unmistakable and irresistible. She does a really beautiful job of displaying all her yarn to its best advantage. If you’re going to any of her upcoming events, you should be sure to stop by.
I already had a small stash of her yarn when I started the book (this one was among them), and knew I wanted to use it if I could. Catherine was marvelous, as expected, and even indulged my fit of shameful indecisiveness. I know you’ll love this, it’s worth seeking out!
