New Gradient Yarn

Breakfast at The Wolseley
Breakfast at The Wolseley

Instead of our normal crafty afternoon, a few weeks ago Ling arranged a brunch at The Wolseley. It was also an excuse to check out the latest yarn in the Whimzy gradient sock yarn collection. I have been a little obsessed with ombré and gradient yarns at the moment, so was extremely excited to see Ling’s version.

Whilst waiting for us, Kate mocked up a few colour samples using watercolours. And they seemed to match up with Ling’s creations. Obviously, both ladies are on the same colour wavelength. The blue/purple creation on the left is very much my first choice. And although the on the right is not my normal colour palette. I love the boldness of the yellow with the  grey and purples.

You will have to wait to see the full Technicolor version!!!

For me, one skein complete stood out. As soon as I saw it I knew it was destined to become a Citron shawl. The yarn looks and feels like cotton (which I love). But it’s actually a merino/nylon mix, with great stitch definition. If you follow me on instagram, you will have seen some of my WIP photos, but you will have to wait a few days to see the shawl in all it’s glory.
