A box full of yarny goodness, all the way from South Africa!
A gift from Pigtails, one of the most talented
crocheters, photographers and bloggers around.
There was Nikkim Vinnis...
(A cotton I was dying to try for quite a while now.)
And more Vinnis...Not only is this yarn very beautiful,
it is hand dyed and balled by women from an economically depressed area of South Africa.
So it empowers women who can really use some empowerment.
And there was Elle Premier cotton in gorgeous colours...
Looking forward to working with this yarn too!
Pigtails' colour choice is really spot on,
I simply love all the colours she chose!
So yesterday I have been crocheting like my life was at stake.
Finally I could work with Vinnis, hooray! And it is great.
It's soft and a real treat to crochet with.
I'm making a scarf (hoping to finish it today).
In Sea Green, Stone & Green Slate.
About the pattern: I wanted to make something wavy,
but not lacy, so the amazing texture of this yarn would show at its best.
And when Jeannette pinned this picture yesterday,
I knew at once this would be it. You can find the pattern here.
I'm using a 4,5 mm crochet hook.
Thanks again Pigtails!
