So this awesome thing happens when you've got a few books and a whole bunch of patterns under your belt.  You start to have a magic list in the back of your head of who does the best yarn.  You know, the places you are sure will always always always have something beautiful to tempt you with.  Hazel Knits is totally on that list (and this is not the first time I've fallen prey to their goodies). I've got two of their little treasures to play with for next year's book.  This is their divine in Braeburn. And this is [...]

Book Yarn, Part IX

I know.  Trust me, I know.  That's an awful lot of pink.  There are even pink blotches in the background (that would be my rose bush, the most neglected and most prolific rose bush you've ever seen...and no it's not blooming now, I took all of these pictures one evening in June and have just been posting them as I go along ever since).  I don't normally do pink.  But for these two, I'll make an exception. On the left is Hazel Knits DK Lively in the color Cotton Candy.  It's a 90/10 merino nylon blend and it is magical.  [...]
