What a great way to start the week. Our Shalimar Yarn order arrived yesterday. The yarn, a dk weight, stonewashed combination of merino, silk and cashmere is called “Breathless” and one customer who was here when I was inventorying said the pile of beautiful colors did leave her breathless. (The other customer who was here at the time bought out all I had of two colors.)
If I hadn’t been waiting for this for so long to make one of the Never Not Knitting shawlettes, I wouldn’t steal any from you to make the sample, but knitting with this will be such a treat I just have to do it. Don’t know how else to describe this except to say this is the kind of yarn that makes us all stop into yarn shops looking for nothing but a soul-nourishing, eye-feasting fix of yarn fondling. I’ll put this one up front so you can get your fix on the way in the door!
