It's a veritable Purple-palooza of Purpleness! I finished this skein a little while ago, but because it was enroute to it's owner's home, I couldn't show photos... for fear of ruining the surprise! This yarn began it's life as a Corgi Hill Batt... which was then purchased by a lovely knitter/spinner, who wasn't sure she could spin the yarn she wanted from it... so it got mailed to *Me* and I had the pleasure of whipping it into skein form :)
The journey was a very fun one too :) This was my first time using a Corgi Hill Product (though I've been checking them out and drooling over their goodies for some time now...) and it definitely won't be my last! The merino, silk, firestar blend was just too much fun! The finished product was a little bit more sparkly than I would have liked for myself, but it sounds like the yarn will be just perfect for what the client had in mind.
Since I had a set of stitch markers that matched so closely (and I rarely use markers, as of yet anyways) I decided to send them along :) It's fun to knit with matching accessories...
I can't wait to see what she makes from it!
