Look at the beautiful yarn I received in my mailbox a couple of days ago! In the end of January, Anne over at “Frøken Fargerik” (Mrs. Colourful) celebrated one year of blogging and had a secret surprise giveaway. I didn’t win the first price, but I won the consolation price.
I received three skeins of Iris Alpakka from Rauma and one skein of Abuelita Three Ply merino wool (*love*). Aren’t they beautiful! She must know me because I absolutely love the colours of the yarn she sent me. I also received lovely tea. Some I have already taken with me to work and a few tea bags I kept at home for knitting moments like now.
The Iris alpaca is different from other alpaca yarns I have knitted with before; it reminds me of mohair yarn in texture. I haven’t knitted with flurry yarn in a while, but I have seen other knitters combine flurry yarn with non-flurry wool. Perhaps I could combine it with grey merino wool. What do you think? If you have any experience with this or suggestions, I would be very grateful.
Talking about give away; If you liked the leather tag hat, don’t miss the giveaway I have that lasts until Sunday! :-)
