Last week Vicky and I visited the Woolie Ewe, where we were delighted to find all their Cascade wool yarn on sale. Despite my limited yarn-wrangling skills, I couldn't resist indulging in this banquet of yummy jewel tone skeins. The colorway is clearly inspired by the gorgeous saturated colors used by Lucy of Attic 24. If you want to enjoy some major eye candy, drop by her blog and spend some quality time going through her posts. She even has me loving purple... now that for me is a seismic shift.
In fact, when I was selecting my colors, I opened her web page on my iPhone right there in the shop and we did our best to match this collection of colors from one of her projects. Yes, I know... shameless!
My original idea was to make a ripple blanket using her excellent tutorial, but after she showed off this scarf, I may hold out to see if she offers a pattern for it. But then she has an excellent technique for joining granny squares as-you-go, which tempts me to make another granny square blanket. At least I already know I can manage that skill-set.
