Who knew? When I purchased three skeins of Tilli Tomas from one of my LYS, I got this way KEWL silk project bag, too! These are two skeins of Pure & Simple in the Multi Red/Orange colorway and one skein of Disco Lights in Ruby Wine. They will become a shortsleeved Sahara, a pattern from Stitch Diva by Wendy Bernard. I love the top-down, fitted design. It’s VERY reminiscent (hmmmmm….) of the Simple Knitted Bodice by Stephanie Japel that I just finished. I had planned to order the same colorway in both P&S and Disco Lights, but I couldn’t resist this combo when I saw it in the shop. We’ll see how it swatches up. I’m looking for digital picture taking advice (Amanda? Lori?). My photos seemed washed out and two-dimensional compared to the in-person loveliness that is this yarn. I like my background, at least — my huge, distressed dark wood dining room table. I want my photos to be pretty like brooklyntweed’s!
Anyway, my poor OTN projects, and the ones languishing in project bags with actual patterns in page protectors, will have to wait just a little longer while I play with this extravagant yarn. I’m fickle, I know — I get infatuated. Fortunately, I indulge this tendency only in my yarn, and not my relationships. December 6 was my 20th wedding anniversary.
