choosing just one new to me galler yarns’ fiber that i’d like to knit with is ever so hard.
i did thin the options down to 3,
then i hit a plateau.
were jasmine (ahh, silk)
and pashmina (cashmere!)
for the sheer luxury of them,
but they’d be living in a drawer in my real day to day life.
for me the three-way tiebreaker was this question: “what would i knit with it?”
i would choose
as the yarn
i’d most like to try.
and i’d knit
the embrace shrug,
or something just like it.
as happy as she looks
every time i wore
such soft alpaca.
fyi: color #119
makes me think of
reeses’ peanut butter cups
(how could you go wrong with yarn that looks like a chocolate combo?)
with my vintage frye campus boots.
just in case anyone is looking for a gift idea…
you only have until midnight tonight
to enter to win a skein of heather prime alpaca.
