New blog post! Appropriate Song is Appropriate
I want something else
to get me through this
semi charmed kinda life
Brings me back to middle school.. and to the shock of hearing the real version of this song for…
The colors reminded me of the all American cereal that children and adults *ahem* can’t get enough of… it also kinda smelled like a bowl of said cereal while I was dyeing it, so there’s that as well :)
The yarn is super squishy and has a lovely sheen to it; the silk takes up the color differently than the merino, so it has a nice tweed-like effect. Trust me, the pictures do it no justice.
This is a limited release yarn. I can re-create the colorway, but the yarn base has been discontinued, sadly.
Here’s the info:
Yardage: 410 yards (375 meters) Weight: 100 grams (3.53 ounces) Fiber content: 63% Superwash Merino, 18.5% Tussah Silk, 18.5% Merino Gauge: 28.0 sts = 4 inches Suggested needle size: US 1 - 3 or 2.25 - 3.25mm
Dyed by yours truly with Kool AId and food coloring. Care: This yarn can be machine washed and dried, but for best results hand wash and dry flat.
