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

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…

Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
