I have been very naughty and bought several hanks of this gorgeous yarn to make a cardigan/jacket. I know it is not the time of year to be treating oneself but I saw the pattern months ago and fell in love with the yarn more recently. I have visited it in the shop two or three times, given it serious thought and finally succumbed yesterday.
I am assuaging my guilt and extravagance with the knowledge that I am supporting the work of artisans in Uruguay who produce these beautiful hand-dyed yarns. This one is a blend of merino wool and silk, and will be treated with the respect it deserves. It is lovely to handle and a joy to knit with. I just hope it fits when I have made it!
