A blog about New Zealand yarns, knitting and life

Inca and plum


Today I got me some joyous beauties at the Wellington Underground Market.

These skeins of pure happiness from Anna Gratton will become the lacy cardigan I showed you from the Noro mag recently.  This is Little Wool Co. fingering weight (4ply) silk, mohair and wool mix in the Inca colourway.

It’s colour like this that makes me want to bury my face in it, and admire the changing shades and colours all day long…

Just one more shot…

There are more at Anna’s booth if you want some for you.  She’ll be there tomorrow too.

I also asked Anna to bring me a few skeins of the fingering weight (4 ply) 50% mohair, 50% wool mix that I adore:

This one is the plum colourway.  This yarn is going to be added to my collection to be admired and petted for a while before I decide to knit it.

As my current projects reach an end, I’m champing at the bit to start some gorgeous new ones!!  I have quite a few lined up to show you later this week – stay tuned!

Off now to spend some time doing what I love best.  Knitting.

  5. those colours look great! Looks so much like the Noro colours – did she have anything similar in a blue-grean colour way?

  6. Ohhhhhhhhh you lucky, lucky girl…..they are both so beautiful, i just so love the two lots of yarn and their colours!!! that beautiful lacy cardigan in that beautiful “Little Wool Co” yarn needs a beautiful “little” camisole to go under it you know 🙂

  7. Wow, don’t that look gorgeous ! Bet it’s gonna make one fine cardigan !
    Makes me wonder… weren’t you very tempted to buy an extra skein ? So you’d have two to knit up and one to just pet and admire.. ? 😉
