So, in an effort to force myself out of the rut, my plan is to introduce a new (to me, at least) yarn each Friday. Or at least, most Fridays. Thus, Fiber Friday.
Today, for the first ever Fiber Friday, I'm looking at a yarn from Spark Story.
A week or two ago, I stumbled across a picture of a gorgeous brown bark colored yarn from Spark Story and instantly fell in love. I immediately went to the shop to place an order. The only problem was, once I saw all the choices, I couldn't decide. I wanted every single yarn offered. There were a zillion different browns to choose from. One looked like sand. There was a beachy looking yarn. There were greens, blues, yellows, purples and did I mention all the browns? I literally couldn't decide. So, I picked Stained Glass. It was sort of a clown barf mixture of all the colors.
The yarn arrived super quick and isn't the least bit clown barfy. Instead of having a mixture of color on creamy white yarn (which is what normally gives clown barf it's barfy appearance,) it's actually a heathered gray. The gray tones down all the other colors and mutes them so there's no clown barf in sight. And I love it!
The yarn feels great in my hands and while it looks like a very thin fingering weight, it's somewhat squishy and knits up thicker than it looks.
And the frequent color changes will make knitting a plain stockinette sock much more enjoyable. Have I mentioned how much I love this yarn? Thank goodness Spark Story has so many lovely colors to choose from. I have the feeling I'm going to be buying more. Did I mention they have yarn that's a bark color? And one that's a sandy tan? And a beachy ocean water blue? And several yellows, and purples, and greens and blues, and even more browns? Oh, I'm in trouble!
