After a super busy weekend that ended with some yarn shopping yesterday (and a yarn delivery from Danemark!) I finally found time to snap some shots of my blocked Lady Sunnyside.
|Lady Sunnyside by Tanis Lavallee|
It's gorgeous! I was a little scared that it would grow, being a superwash merino, but Tanis Fiber Arts Yellow Label just gets smooth and silky once blocked. I'm thrilled with the result.
I used DK instead of Aran weight, but because I knitted my Gemini pullover in the very same yarn, I knew my gauge was pretty close. And with a top-down piece, it's so easy to add room as you go.
This Dove colourway is amazing. The crazy light in the pictures doesn't do it justice, but here's a link to a Moodboard that Tanis did to feature it. To me it feels like a rich grey that flirts with lilac. Genius!
The yarn is addictive. I'm so happy I have another lot in my stash. The next project I intend to knit in Yellow Label is Joji's Dragonflies Jumper in the Light at Dusk colour (a ooak Etsy update colour from last boxing day).
