Part of the Winter Yarn Spree. Isn't this gorgeous yarn?
I love the color changes and the bit of sparkle.
I'm thinking it will make a nice triangle shawl, and/or a cowell.
This time of year, I usually have some extra money from Christmas and gift certificates, etc. If I have extra money, I usually spend it on art supplies. [Go figure ...] This year is no exception. I thought about trying to dye up my own version of this Midnight Brocade yarn, then I thought--that's crazy! It's readily available. Just buy it. Save the one-of-a-kind home dying for things I can't otherwise purchase (and there are some of those, too.)
About $5 / ball at Knitting Warehouse
The fiber content is acrylic with some wool and a little sparkle.
I'm interested to see how this yarn does on the Triangle Loom. I'm hoping for a sunset pattern [Scroll down to the June Franklin section], but I may have to dye that myself according to the specifics of my loom. I have the means and the know-how. ;-) If the color spacing doesn't work for the Tri-Loom, I can always make another crocheted cowell : portable handwork.
Where do you like to buy yarn?
