No possible way to win that list of choices at all. I went with this.
My mom at 80. She still cleans two condos full time. She has more gumption and grace and charm than I ever will. She has always been younger than springtime to me. Happy Birthday mom!
I did have a lovely weekend and it gave me a chance to stop in at Prairie Lily in Saskatoon. There is always something interesting there. For a change, I came away without any Briggs and Little!
I did find delicious though.
This is Rowan's Fine Silk. It is a blend of silk, wool and viscose that is wonderfully soft and has a really lovely sheen to it. These are only 25 gram balls with 164 metres but with 2 teal and 2 lime, I have enough for a nice small neck shawl. A better than jewellery summer accessory.
I must be having a thing for this slight variation on my blue and green fixation. This is the second set of yarns I have in these colours. The first set is Einband for the Courant shawl from Twist Collective.
I am sure I am having a thing with this limey green colour because this was the first thing I carried with me around the store.
My perennial favourite Meilenweit sock yarn.
I picked up one other brand of sock yarn. It is a new one for Prarie Lily but it looks great and she had a wonderful selection of it.
She said she got it in because it had a really great price (12.99 CA per ball) . At that price you cannot lose and there were some great long striped colours, multi's and striping. So many choices. I choose sspring sky colours but if you look close, you will see a hint of that green! More fool me. I did not see it till I took the pictures!
The green makes sense to me. The snow is all gone here except in shaded places. It is a little early but this limey green is the colour of leaf buds just as they pop. Once they are out a bit everything is apple green, but the first colour that very first burst of spring is this limey green goodness.
The world is waking up and I guess, it is where I am in space and time and that is a pretty good thing.
