Look...

Check it out....from "Down Undah"!!

Don't you just love these colors? The colorway is named "Moses Fire", very appropriate for Autumn! My buddy Terri sent it to me from Australia!

Sorry the picture is so blurry, it's been a very blustery day! I wanted to get a shot next the my neighbors sugar maple but I opted for my Dogwood! Isn't it beautiful?! I wish you could feel this...it's a Merino/Cashmere blend that so squishy soft, it came from The Knittery. I've gotta plan real careful what I'm going to make with it! I'm thinking scarf...any suggestions?

Thanks Terri!!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!

You are so welcome Robin. Glad you like it. It does look very nice with all that autumn colour you have there. Looking forward to seeing what you make with it. :o) Hugs.

Oh, so yummuy! Makes me want to curl up and take a nap in it (maybe I was a cat in a former life!).

Thanks for the comments over at TenTen!

it is GORGEOUS! not knowing yardage or yarn weight, i'd say that it would make a lovely wrap or scarf - must keep that yummy yarny softness close to one's face for snuggling...

That's really a gorgeous colorway. So vibrant! I've got nothin' as far as suggestions are concerned but I look forward to seeing what you decide. :)

Very nice.. unfortunately they look a little HOKIE like to me.... so I probably would not go there.. do they have other color?

Margaret said...

It does look just like a bright autumn maple! How about a small Forest Canopy, Leaf Lace, or Flower Basket shawl? Or Knitspot's Twinings in scarf size? Or just pick a lace you like with garter borders.

Surfed over from Terri's blog. Daphne's yarns are absolutely gorgeous to knit and wear and her service is first class.

Ditto what Margaret said. Plus go here http://simpleknits.blogspot.com/2007/08/296-triangle-shawl-patterns.html
to check out several shawls listed by yardage. It's been a very helpful resource for me.
