Yarn porn

Another crochet artist’s blog mentioned a yarn I had never heard of before, and so when I spotted it at one of my Local Yarn Stores (LYS) I had a feel.

And WOW!  It had a lovely range of colours, a beautiful shine to it and is so, so soft and silky it’s to die for!

It is called Andes, by Debbie Bliss yarns.

Only problem was, it was £5.99 per 50g skein.  That’s a lot of money.  The lady who used this yarn in her blog spent over £50 on a scarf!  But the result was beautiful.

So I looked around online and managed to find a bargain, at £4.90 per skein, from HCS Crafts online. I added 6 skeins to my basket and no longer had to pay any postage either, so I was very happy!  I ordered a selection (6 or 7 skeins) and they arrived quite promptly, so I can recommend the seller.

I love them.  The colours are beautiful and actually go very well together.  I am inspired.  I shall have to play with them.  I ordered some of the more muted colours (I know, not like me at all) and I know they do a few brighter/deeper ones.

I have balled up two skeins so far.  I shall work on the rest later this weekend.

Can you tell the sun is shining.  I love working with yarn and colours in the sunshine.
