Chlorochrous & Shibui

I'm using the Curls preorder to introduce the patterns and yarns from the book. I'll be featuring a new pair each day. Most of the yarn companies have donated lovely prizes, so come back every day to see what's new!  Chlorochrous in Staccato by Shibui  There are days (I decline to say how many), when I need just a little extra help to get through the day -- some sort of extra armor to keep me safe from the world (or just possibly to keep the world safe from me).  It has not escaped my notice that you can wear [...]

Book Yarn, Part VI

This morning, Shibui. On the right is Sock in the color Wasabi.  It's a superwash merino, and it comes in an impressive range of semi-solids and a handful of multis (and, in a move I wish more companies would make, the multis list which of the semi-solids they're made with so you can pair up yarns with confidence, even on a computer monitor).  I've been a fan of this yarn for a long time and used it for Serab way back in the first book. On the left is Baby Alpaca DK in the color Flaxen.  This is a 3 [...]
