Weeks ago, probably more than a month now that I think about it, Dave saw that I was looking at yarn online. The conversation went a little like this: I told him the yarn was on sale, but that I wasn't going to get it. He asked, "why not?" "Yarn diet." He asked if he bought it for me if it counted against my yarn diet. I said, "You want to buy me yarn?!"
This is what he got me:
5 skeins of Araucania Toconao Multy in colorway Beach Flowers (402)
AND, yes there is an and, 10 skeins of Araucania Toconao Multy in colorway English Garden (426)
I think I am going to make an Abalone out of the 5 skeins of Beach Flowers. Do you have any other suggestions? It is an Aran weight yarn and 5 skeins is 695 yds (635.5m).
I'm not sure what I want to make out of the 10 skeins of English Garden. A few ideas I had were:
- Every Last Yard
- Streamside - this would only use slightly over half the yarn, otherwise would be a Beach Flowers contender
