Oops, more yarn coming my way!

Oh woe 🙂  (I can’t get enough yarn, and since I only started my stash in October I think I am justified!  So everyone whose New Years Resolution is to destash, send some my way 🙂 )

I just ordered some Marshmallow from Colinette.  It’s not available on their website — it’s similar to Point Five but much softer.  It’s my favourite yarn so far! I had gotten one skein at the Knitting & Stitching show because the colours called out to me, but I didn’t know that it would be so pleasant to loom with so I didn’t get more at that time. Unfortunately, now it is full price, £5.50 per 100g which is about 50m and about enough to make one hat.  (I made my “ragdoll” hat — sorry, pics soon as I can do them! — out of it and used every last inch.)  I got three skeins of Fiorentina colourway to make a scarfette to match my hat, plus one of Lagoon (to make a hat to go with the legwarmers I am making out of the Prism in Lagoon I bought yesterday) and one of Jay just because it looked pretty. (I’m on a blue kick for some reason…)  I LOVE this yarn and would buy every last skein they had in pretty much every colourway if I could!   I did feel Point Five at Loop yesterday but Marshmallow really is that much softer.  I have a lovely sleeveless sweater pattern for the loom made out of Point Five that I’d rather do in Marshmallow, but that’s a bit pricey at 6 or 7 skeins 😦

  Did I mention that I LOVE Marshmallow??? 🙂  Just checking! *vbg*
