I'm In Love

With yarn.  Shocking, I know.

I just had to gush about my recent purchase that came in the mail today.  Just look at at!

Have you ever seen anything so beautiful?  I bought it from TheyToldMeSew at her Etsy shop.  It is roughly 215 yards of handspun delicious in a heavy worsted/bulky weight.  I have never felt yarn like this, and it is wonderful.  I wouldn't classify this yarn as being soft and squooshy, but it is definitely a sturdy feeling yarn and I hesitate to say stiff, but it feels like it has a lot of substance, if that makes sense.  I am very pleased with it.  Now all I have to do is think of something to make with it.  What does one make with yarn that looks like this anyway?

Until I figure that out, it will just have to be on display.  My first piece of art!


  1. LOL I was all ready to congratulate you on your photog skills until I saw that you borrowed the pics! I can't wait to see what that yarn becomes...should be colorful! :-P

  2. Gosh. This looks wonderful! At first I thought you had spun it up!
