As much preparation is underway on many fronts for next week's travel, there hasn't been much happening in the kettle. But a quick custom order for a friend led to these little gems! This yarn base is just incredible, and theĀ fibers pull the dye in different ways, leading to myriad hues and colors. It reminded me of the beautiful sea urchins so plentiful at many of the beaches around the island, both in color and the extension of the fluff!
