Fortunately, I do not have a similar problem when it comes to Blue Moon Fiber Arts. Tina dreams up beautiful colors, her team dyes them on the lovely STR base, and me, I churn through it. According to Ravelry, I've used 12 different skeins of it. Beyond the basics--Cascade 220, KnitPicks Comfy etc, I'm not sure there's another company where I've gone through 12 different colorways.
So of course I needed more...
I mentioned that the Philosopher couldn't possibly live without a skein of Tea and Alchemy with his name on it, right?
Yes, he's spoiled. What can I say, he brags about the fact that he has a selection of handknit triangles and socks. And he wears the triangles and his fingerless gloves all the time. He even wears a Malabrigo Sock yarn hat on cold days--and this from a man who doesn't wear hats if at all possible.
Once that obligation was settled, I started looking for colors that appealed to me. Apparently I'm still in a bright kick...
This is Hobbit Garden
Isn't it pretty? No clue what I'll make yet.
Next up I saw a reference to the popular song Happy which is "A Room Without a Roof"
What you can't quite see in that picture is the purple accents-- that whole ultraviolet issue again. It's so bright, I'm so excited to make something from it. I'm thinking maybe fingerless gloves for me. I still need another pair.
And finally I defaulted back to Mediumweight for a skein. I often have said that if I only had one yarn base to pick from the rest of my life I'd go with BMFA STR Medium Weight and I truly believe it. This colorway is Royal.
They're bright and lovely. I'll be happy to have them brightening up the stash for a bit and then becoming something beautiful.
