Happiness is…

a pretty fair isle number in Little Wool Company‘s beautiful pure wool naturals.  Those Corriedale sheep sure are a handsome lot.

I love working with this yarn.  

Good little stitches that stay where they are put – very useful if you have to rip back to correct small errors. It would be great for steeking (where you cut into your knitting to create arm holes or an opening when working a tubular fair isle piece) and working cables without a cable needle too. 

The colours blend into each other beautifully.  The yarn softens as it wears without pilling or blurring. It’s perfect!

I can’t tell you what this is project is… it’s a secret.

If only Anna would produce a nice subtle tweed in this yarn, I’d be in heaven!

Happy Sunday.

  1. Thanks for an inspiring blog. I live in Australia and have tried for some time to locate New Zealand yarns online. I hope you can offer some ideas. I looked at the Zealana site however no idea how to purchase the yarn. Thaks again for lovely ideas.

    • Hello! Thanks for reading my blog. 🙂 I’ve linked the yarns that can be bought online in my sidebar – My Favourite New Zealand Yarns. You should be able to get in contact with the suppliers that way. For Zealana, you can purchase these yarns online through Knit World, who mail internationally(www.knitworldstudio.co.nz). Happy yarn shopping!
