A super secret yarn project is underway at ThreadingWater. It seems a certain son is about to marry a certain lovely woman and that necessitates a certain serious handmade gift.
The bride-to-be has chosen this color palette in earthtones with an accent of pale blue. (Oops, sorry Seth – I know you thought you agreed to a pale green. It's a lovely world you live in. It's just not always the same one the rest of us experience.)
The earthy colors are Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. This is the first time I've used this yarn and it won't be the last. It has a lovely drape and hand, and it's an amazing value since each skein is 100 grams. The blue is Rowan All Seasons Cotton – a microfiber blend that is a wee bit heavier than the Brown Sheep, and much loftier. It has something of a velvety touch and contrasts nicely with the smooth texture of the Cotton Fleece.
