I love Karen cashmere sock yarn.

I love all my yarns, and here is why I adore Karen mcn (merino/cashmere/nylon):  it is beyond soft, and since it has nylon, you can actually make socks from it.  Not that I would.  It's way too pretty for my feet.  This is prime yarn for scarves and shawlettes, and mitts, and cowls, and OK, socks too.

I dyed yarn yesterday morning.  The Hubbo was off on his garage sale expeditions, and it seemed a good moment to play with color.  I set out to dye autumn colors and pastels, but you know those dyes; they have a mind of their own.  I did get some lovely muted blues and teals and an antique rose, but then the dyes took over, and I have a lovely collection of rosiness and pinkies, too.  While I had my back turned, an amber colorway sneaked out into the dyepot.  What can I tell you?  I have no control here.  I can't repeat these colorways except for Summer's Last Rose.  I happily mixed and poured and played and don't ask me how I did it because I don't know.

The roses:  American Beauty

Cherie Rose

Charming Rose

 Muted Roses

Summer's Last Rose

The Blues: Black Forest

 Sleepy Meadow


And Amber:

You can email me directly if you want one before I post on Etsy.  fritzL234 AT yahoo DOT com
Otherwise, wait until I put them up on Etsy.

Scrabblequeen - Karen yarn is $25 + the usual first class shipping of $3.  It's more than my usual yarns because it costs me considerably more.  It really is gorgeous and worth the money, and you know I'm cheap.
