Let's take a look at a few recent purchases.
|Berroco Remix Light and Pixel|
Both yarns are from Berroco. The Blue is Remix Light, is a cotton, acrylic, silk and linen blend. It looks and feels like faded denim. The blue and green speckled is Pixel, a superwash wool. I have no idea what pattern I'll knit with these but one day I will combine them into something.
This one is Prose from Wisdom Yarns in the Greenery colorway. It's a not very soft superwash sock yarn in shades of blues and greens. It may not be the softest skein in the stash, but I absolutely love the watery blues and greens. I'm also thinking (and hoping) it softens up once it's washed. Luckily my feet are, well, let's be honest here - gross. They are calloused enough that not so soft socks don't bother them at all.
These skeins are both Whisper Lace from Fibra Natura. They are superwash wool and silk blends, lace weight and their color names are Harbor (the blue) and Ocean Torrent (the blue and green multi.) These yarns are super soft and while I once again don't have a pattern in mind. When I purchased them, I'd planned to knit a simple cowl holding the two yarns together. But now I'm thinking about a simple shawl knit from the multi with a solid lacy border. Only time will tell.
So, what do you think? Do you think I have a type? I don't have any kind of problem saying no to blue and green yarns. People are just silly! Of course I don't have a type! No, not me!
I'm joining Carole and friends for Three on Thursday.
