...That's what my housemate said when I giddily showed her my Christmas yarn.
It's cherry red and jade green merino, plied with white corridale. The green is spun with a bit of peacock angelina fibre, and the whole thing is plied with a load of gold angelina and cotton balls to represent big snow drifts. Its part of the christmas present I'm making for my Mother, I hope she loves it.
I am giddy over this. Its pretty much my first real plied yarn (only the second non-test yarn I've made) and I'm so in love with it, as my pictures show! (possibly a little too much)
Plying in progress, during the rerun of Torchwood. Captain Jack is conductive to good plying!
After fixing, but before it had completely dried. The green is a LOT more green than in any of these pictures, which is annoying.
Detail of the yarn before fixing, fluffiness and sparklyness!
All dried, but still the green isn't showing up as as green as I'd liked.
Am I the only one who has the urge to make out with their yarn? Probably. It doesn't make our love wrong!
