I spotted this yarn on Ravelry when I first joined, and let me tell you, it was love at first sight. I searched and searched the web for a UK stockist, but couldn't find anyone. Then last week I got Let's Knit August Issue, and included was a Create & Craft brochure, and you never guess what they had on offer!
I went straight to the website, and spent the £20 I had just been given on 12 skeins of this Cotton Treat. I purchased Pinky Stripes, Lime Stripes and Modern Stripes, which are all Aran (Worsted) self-striping yarn.
I bought the Modern colour way hoping to make myself a bag to match the shawl I'm making for next weekend, I was a bit dubious as first but after seeing it I know that it will work perfectly. I reckon the bag will only need 2, or at the most, 3 skeins, so I'll have an extra to play with.
I bought Pinky just because I loved the colour. I have no idea what I will make with it, all I know is that I love it. This is certainly the start of me buying yarn just because I love it, its just going to go downhill from here. Candy Skein here I come! If you have any suggestions what I could use it for, drop a comment!
Unfortunately the Lime hasn't arrived yet, and like the Pinky I bought it just because I fell in love with it. I think though it might work as a Blanket, although it would have to be a Baby Blanket or a small blanket as I only have 4 skeins. Again, any suggestions highly appreciated!!
