lucky me

A couple of days ago a parcel arrived with an american stamp....

A soft squidgy parcel....

From Sarah at The Plucky Knitter....


A skein of fingering weight merino I was lucky enough to win in Sarah's last giveaway.

It's so so soft, and such a beautiful colour.....

So now, decisions, decisions.....what shall I knit? Any suggestions?

Thanks so much, Sarah!

Personally I wouldn't knit anything. I would leave it displayed in its twisted skein! It looks beautiful. x

Lucky you! I agree with Simone - it makes a wonderful still life. Such a gorgeous colour.

Ali said...

That is the most beautiful colour!

How about a Baktus scarf?

Tilly said...

Ooh, that's gorgeous. It's shouting 'shawl' to me.

Scarf definitely, then you can feel the softness on your neck and the colour near your face.

oh, me again... my comments are like buses....
Merino is the dreamiest wool isn't it? My fair isle cardigan which is on the needles as I speak, is being made from merino wool, 4 ply. It is the lightest most wonderful wool ever.
I wonder what you'll make?
