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?
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!

note: now for just a little of the nitty-gritty.
i was given this skein from mango moon yarns to review,
but, you all know me, and
a free skein of yarn (even if it is shimmery)
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…
