Stairway To Heaven: Step 1

Stairway To Heaven: Step 1

Stairway To Heaven was on when I finally decided to give up looking for a specific yarn I had stashed away for knitting, and picked up these bags of sparkledy yarns. Not many patterns out there. Found a scarf pattern that is beautifully blended in a chevron stitch. Mine won’t blend as beautifully, but it sure will sparkle!

Bad news received after reading a review of Darella (discontinued), indicating: “The metallic yarn was truly horrible to use, both in the embroidery and in the crochet.” I am hoping by knitting, I might be serving myself, however, I am already pulling strands, though tolerable at the moment.

Mr. Blue Sky: Inception

Look what I can do!

Mr. Blue Sky by Electric Light Orchestra has been born with the creation of my first hand dyed ombre yarn. I don’t know what it will be and whether or not I will combine with another yarn for something spectacular, though on its own, I think the shade of blue I obtained is right on! I am not exactly sure of the yarn name, but I think it’s from Newton’s Yarn Country. It is definitely wool, per a burn test , and i think the yarn weight is DK.
