Waiting for the waters to break...

Some vivacious mohair sample just waiting  to get 'wrapped'
Nobody likes waiting, least of all me. Here at the Skeinz 'Yarn Kitchen' I have a number of projects which are almost to term.  It's like pacing the floor whilst you're waiting for your waters to break & give birth to the new life you have been nourishing, nurturing & gestating for months.  It is so close, yet not quite there.

A sneak peak at one of the 4 natural Silver Lining shades
One such project is a new addition to our Heritage range of yarns (I have three Heritage 'buns' in the oven) called Silver Lining.  This is ultra fine coloured Merino, which has been lovingly blended by the team in the mill to produce a series of four gradient natural colours.  I really wish we had yarn 'squish-ivison' because this yarn is simply sublime.  It's 17 microns, that's like Italian wool suit fine, perfect for that special heirloom project, even for a special abay project.  If all does well Silver Lining will be delivered towards the end of next week....
These two yarns work ideally together in this precious wee cardigan.
To keep with the gestational theme of today's blog, Robynne down in the Skeinz shop also kept her fingers busy knitting up this delightful wee sample for the shop using Vintage Filigree & Vintage DK.  The Pattern is Baby Vertebrae from Kelly Brooker at PekaPeka Design Studio (Click here to purchase) and the combination of the ethereal Filigree with the Vintage DK border work beautifully in Kelly's simply stunning design.  Knitted here in Newborn size.
