the halo, the depth, the shine

acyclovir pills price i don’t think

that i have ever caught sight of

a linen blend yarn that pulls off such a striking halo.

as a matter of fact, i’m not sure i’ve seen a linen blend with

any halo whatsoever until now.

isn’t it pretty?

and see how the linen takes to the dye

in its own special way that’s unique from

the merino’s take on the color?

that tonality gives extra visual depth to each and every stitch.

then,

as if that’s not enough

to make a knitter want to cast on something new asap,

the merino and linen fibers,

when twisted

together,

give the yarn somewhere between ‘shine’ and ‘glow’

look at the way the light catches it…i’m so excited about ‘milo’,

this new yarn from manos del uruguay.

the only downside? i’m having a bit of trouble

narrowing all the different stitches that look great in this yarn

down to just one to get started with,

but that’s exactly the kind of ‘problem’

that we knitter’s thrive on.

am i right?

note: now for just a little of the nitty-gritty.

i was given this skein from manos del uruguay to review,

but, you all know me, and

a free skein of yarn (even with a halo like this)

isn’t ever going to make me say i like what i don’t.

i’m much too stubborn and pig-headed for things like that…

let’s do the (mango moon) twist

there is just something about this yarn.

do you see it?

how the cotton/linen mix rustles up this kind of luxurious shimmer

i’ve no idea, but look how it almost glows with possibility!

this is mango moon ‘twist’, a sport weight beauty.

doesn’t the ‘blueberry’ colorway remind you of faded denim,

you know, that point where your jeans are so perfectly broken in

that they are almost faded into wearing right through,

which makes them soft as butter & makes you

never ever want to take them off?

…that color.

i started this post a few weeks back,

put it on the back burner to knit a little something in this yarn

and quite honestly, got so distracted by the possibilities

(there are so many things that i thought i heard

this soft, yet strong, yarn yarn begging to become)

that i’m only getting round to posting now.

you can see how that’s a designer’s rabbit hole, right?

this  lovely stuff is still on my needles

and i’m still enjoying it.

truly, that’s knitting

at its best!
