I have to clean my car today.
A friend was traveling and brought me back goodies. The bumper sticker is going on my car today. Part of me wishes my Julia's wheel was a solid thing, like the S10. If it was, just for fun, I'd mount it there! Too bad Julia looks just a little more traditional.
My friend also brought me some of this.
Its Berocco's new Flicker yarn, an unimaginably soft confection of 87% baby alpaca and 8% of acrylic carrier for 5% other fibres, which I assume is what the shiny stuff is.
There is just the smallest most subtle bit of shiny stuff in here. Its just enough for a hint, the tiniest flicker of glisten and sheen. It isn't 80's in your face metallic, it's thoroughly modern. It is a gentle metallic for a new age.
I know exactly what I am going to do with it too. Lofty, warm, yummy soft. This quite simply demands to be made into a snuggly fall shawl. And if I am not careful and extremely sensible, this might just get cast on today.
PS. This yarn is getting a very high rating from me. Very high. Lofty.
