I Did a Bad, Bad Thing...

... and it's all Jess' fault. After years of avoiding pulling the trigger and joining the Magnolia Society, I finally joined. I'm in for three sweaters' worth of beautiful yarn. After a very long, confusing color selection process, I decided (with Jess' help) on these stunning color + yarn combos:

DK Twist in Dustbowl

80/10/10 Sport in Venetian

Dream Alpaca DK in Malachite

I haven't received any yarn yet, but used the pics above (from Ravelers jettshin, shkitty, and pnason respectively) to help judge what each color would like on that particular base. I know dye lots differ and such, but you could definitely see a trend with each base.

Next steps: 1. Finish Girasole (I'll post more about that later). 2. Twiddle thumbs (or finish other projects) while I wait for my first shipment.

Missing brunch, my enablers, and all things NY,

P.S. I don't know why I'm signing off like it's a letter - but I was told once I need to include my name in my posts. So there.


  1. Oooooh, pretty! I was just checking out a yarn CSA from Juniper Moon Farms - might have to break out the wallet and go sign up for that!

  2. Yesssss, we are comrades in Magnolia crime!
