Every so often a certain yarn just takes my fancy. For a long while it was the Kauni Effect Yarn that had my attention; come to think of it, it might just jump onto the hook again in the very near future. I just haven’t worked anything in it for a while – although I have a couple of balls of very nice purple that could work up fast enough for this winter… Another yarn that I’m pretty besotted by is the Artesano Aran, that is one seriously nice yarn too.
My latest great yarn love is Rowan Felted Tweed DK, my mouth water just writing down the name of that yarn. It’s the whole package I’m besotted with, the colours, the texture and not least the lightness of the yarn and the warmth of it and the… The list goes on, and yes, I have it bad, so much so that last night when I had finished work for the day I grabbed a size 4.5 mm hook, and I was off.

Right now there are more ideas lining up in quick succession. The back of the envelope that I grabbed is near full of my scribbles. And the weather is playing ball too. Loads of snow is the perfect excuse to take out the lap blanket and snuggle up in the settee with the yarn stash and the hook collection. Oh yes, I am most certainly having an affair, a yarn affair!
Note: The colours chosen are reflecting my logo colours, yet again. Amazing how this happens subconsciously all the time.
