the thing about yarn is that we get to tell it what to do
one stitch at a time.
that is not the way that most of life goes,
at least not my life,
and it feels very, very good when something allows me that much choice
and ultimate control.
along those lines,
this week was all about swatching.
last week i pictured hat box in ‘new leaf’ and this week i’m testing ideas
(mostly gauge related) with a bit in the colorway roasted chestnut,but, it’s the same lovely fiber mix of
merino, silk and cashmere
(can i get an excited ‘oooh’ and a happy ‘aahhh’?).
such drape and my fingers
are overjoyed at being ‘forced’ to touch
this lovely yarn over and over again.
‘mondays with mrs. crosby’ is an ongoing series of posts
(to be posted on mondays, of course),
detailing a current collaboration between mrs. crosby yarns
and me. stay tuned.
