More photos

More Ravelry photos in the conservatory today. I’m having a terrible time with colour consistency.

Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend 9332

Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend Col.. 9332 – this is for some more Mama Janes slippers.

Yarn Yard Aurora

The Yarn Yard “Aurora” Col. 425. Merino 80%/Silk 20% laceweight 1200 metres per 100g

Yarn Yard Machair

The Yarn Yard “Machair” Col. 422  70% baby Alpaca/20% silk/10% Cashmere laceweight 1200 metres per 100g

Although these two yarns are the same weight, they are very different yarns indeed and will suit very different projects. Project choice is going to be fun. See how fluffy the Machair is? Totally opposed to the sleekness of the Aurora, which has a higher twist and will give better stitch definition. Both are however glorious colours.

Lord, it’s a horrible day. Did I mention that?

I’m going to make coffee. Poor old Mr L is engaged in his dad’s crossword again…
