This morning I opened a box of samples being returned to me from Claudia Edam of Zealana/The YarnSisters. I had sent her things to showcase their yarns at VK Live in Chicago. You can see that they were “padded” with balls of Kiwi (both weights). Do you think that Claudia knew that I was thinking about redoing one of my sweaters in Kiwi DK and that it uses six colors?
As a designer, this sort of yarn generosity keeps me using this yarn. Of course I love, love, love their yarns, but I also don’t like having things sitting around not being used, so I am more inclined to use something when it is sitting right there ready to use. It is always fun to get something you aren’t expecting too, so I love that. Of course I immediately thought of a new project that is PERFECT for the lace weight. Sigh. I know I shouldn’t, but I have a feeling I will. I have no control.
