Since it’s my birthday month, I decided to do another month of Yarnbox. It’s a wonderfully fun little splurge, and it’s justified by the fact that I get to experience new yarns for future designs. Then again, we knitters really don’t need any excuse for getting more yarn. Right? That’s kind of a foreign mindset to me, but I’m grasping it. I’m determined to build a good-sized stash so when I’m inspired to design, I’ve got plenty to work with.
Anyway, didn’t mean to ramble on about that! Moving on… This month featured an international dyer, Siidegarte, and the yarn in the box is Siide-Flauschig, a lovely 50/50 silk/merino worsted weight. I got the Aichblatt colorway, a pretty green I’m envisioning turning into some kind of leafy design.
