Yarn Candy Monday: Araucania Ranco Multi

19. April 2010 09:00 by Jobo | 0 Comments

Once again... I was tempted by Webs... They had Ranco Solid and Multi on sale again...  oops!

The Blue one reminds me of a winter ocean with shades of blue, gray and even purple!

This one reminds me of a day at the beach - Blue bright sky with fine sand under my feet.  Mom liked it too... it now lives at her house :)

Yarn Candy Monday: Easter Edition!

5. April 2010 10:00 by Jobo | 1 Comments

You might remember a post about this yarn some time ago (back in August here) about this Pretty Cotton Candy Blue navajo 3-ply Merino... Well I couldn't help myself this weekend and I finally decided on a suitable sock pattern to use this for :)  The light blues and purples and pinks made me think of Easter eggs and spring time.  The weather here this week has been excellent and warm - gotta love t-shirt weather in March and April!
