The traveling yarn package arrived today.
The yarn is Miss Babs Caroline which is 70% merino, 20% cashmere and 10% nylon. I have not used this yarn before but it feels like something I could use quite often in the future!
The blue is Chip. The yellow is Jonquil. The blue variegated is Bluebonnets and the green variegated is Ziggy Stardust.
Here are the options for making this two color test wrap:
- This is bluebonnet (middle) and Chirp.
My Thoughts: Even though there doesn’t appear to be blending of these two colors, there might be some blending with the colorwork. This is my favorite because both “Bluebonnet” and “Chirp” have connections for us to Texas. I would love to use these two colors together but probably not on this project.
2. This is bluebonnet (middle) and Jonquil.
My Thoughts: I like this together but I think the pale yellow wouldn’t be great with the white in Bluebonnets.
3. This is Ziggy Stardust (middle) and Chirp.
My Thoughts: I like this but I think the blue looks almost too bright plus there is a lot of the same shade of blue in the variegated skein.
This is Ziggy Stardust (middle) and Jonquil.
My Thoughts: The yellow is more yellow than it appears in this photo, but not yellow enough to lose the colorwork when next to the yellow in the Ziggy Stardust.
This is what I’m going to use – the Ziggy Stardust and Jonquil.
