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.
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.
