At the Knitters Review Retreat, a skein of Briar Rose laceweight was one of the many wonderful raffle prizes. Didn't win it. But I helped the winner wind the skein and fell madly in love with the colors. Shades of pink, olive, blue, plum, gold.
I wanted some of that! But I didn't want laceweight.
Chris of Briar Rose was there and she graciously offered to dye that colorway in a different weight. I chose Legend--a weight that's between sport and DK.
It wasn't until I began working on a project, that I realized why I loved the colorway. They're my colors. The colors I surround myself with. The colors I walk on every day!
Um. . . did you notice an inconsistency? You're right. No, that doesn't look like the Lady Eleanor that I started with this yarn.
Story to be continued next time.
