YPF, Canadian Style

While in the Seasocks visit to the Beehive Yarns Feeding frenzy, I I picked up 3 skeins of the Hand Maiden Seasilk in the Moss colorway. I think I'm entering my "green" phase because it was the second time this trip that I bought yarn in this colorway. It's so wonderful to fondle and the color is delicious and slated to become a shawl from More Big Girl Knits (the name eludes me right now--it's not the Goddess shawl but the one made from Seasilk).

Photographed outside the Empress Hotel, Victoria, BC.



Sea Silk: 70% Silk, 30% Seacell®; 3mm/US 2; 27 stitches/4"; 400m/437.4yds; 100g/3.53oz.

But not always...


I love this photo of LCK. I just sums up how I felt the entire trip--having fun and enjoying life.


Have a great weekend!!

The yarn perfectly captures the season in Minneapolis right now - just the same green as all those new leaves. Your shots of it are lovely, as is it.

Even though I live for anything colored PINK I have noticed a soft spot for the greens and yellows lately. That green is beautiful

I love Handmaiden Sea Silk, so lovely to knit with. You chose a really pretty colour. I have only ever splurged on one skein, so just have a scarf, but I would love to knit a shawl in it one day.
