I received this beautiful skein of yarn from my swap partner for the South African Christmas Swap. I do love the colours SO much, these are my colours, (know what I mean?) When I see them, my heart skips a beat. I have kept this skein safely in its box and haven’t dared take it out until I found a project worthy of it. Do you ever feel this way, that some yarns are just too gorgeous and wonderful to be knitted up into a project? That they should be kept somewhere special for you to look at when needing a yarn fix. That the perfect project has to be found for it or all will be lost? This is how I feel about this particular skein of Hartlam yarn.
After much thought and going back and forth, I decided that it would have to be a cowl. I am busy with the design now, thinking up stitches and pattern techniques in my mind. This yarn reminds me of the beauty that we have here in the Drakensburg mountains, where there are precious forest glades hidden away among valleys. It will be a pattern reflecting this thought process.
The journey of this Forest Glade Cowl has already begun, I have balled the skein and cast on, oh the excitement!
