It started with a trip to Mary Maxim, looking for blocking pins for my Night Sky filet piece.  They didn't have the pins, and I couldn't leave without getting SOMEthing (I'm not the only one who feels this way, right?  Right?), and I spotted this yarn.

It's Bernat Mosaic (ETA: Psychedelic colourway), which I've been meaning to try out since I first heard about its release.  It just looked so pretty on my monitor, and it looked stunning in the store!

After much swatching, I finally decided on Queen Anne's Lace.  I think it really goes well with the long-ish colour changes!

Pretty close-up:

More colours!

Oh gosh, this is so wonderfully colourful and pretty. It makes my inner colour-loving hippie happy.

Not bad for acrylic, eh?   I can't wait to wear this with my black winter coat.  I think it'll look awesome ^_^

Against black would be gorgeous! I would probably wear it with everything...

I was just looking at the colors and it rivals Dreamweaver yarn, known for brilliant colors like that!

Which of the Mosaic colorways is that?  Looks like the psychedelic one.  I may have to buy some!
