More on the obsession with buying
crack yarn for making shadow shawls. The new Schaefer Anne came into Borealis, the Schaefer people are continuing on their red kick and extending into blindingly bright territory. There was only one colorway that I half liked, the green / blue / plum at the bottom of the set. I continue to love, love, love the green / tan skein, but my sister says she does not want brown in the skein. But I included it in attempts to sway her. There are a bunch of blue and green matches, which are nice but lacking any oomph. Then there is my favorite, at the top: the green/blue potluck from Cherry Tree Hill with Euroflax. Sadly, there are only 420 yds in the CTH, probably too little even for the non-pico yarn. (And picoing in the Euroflax! Ick!). So, do I find it so stunning just because I can't have it? Inquiring minds want to know.
Edited to add: the Cherry Tree Hill is now the second from the top, and my new favorite(?) is the Mountain Colors in Glacial Teal with the teal Euroflax. How can you go wrong, with glacier as your colorway?!
