There’s one love that we all share: yarn. Blog about a particular yarn you have used in the past or own in your stash, or perhaps one that you covet from afar. If it is a yarn you have used you could show the project that you used it for, perhaps writing a mini ‘review’. Perhaps, instead, you pine for the feel of the almost mythical qiviut? You could explore and research the raw material and manufacturing process if you were feeling investigative.

I have a number of yarns that I have used and loved (I’ve gushed about Cascade Sierra multiple times). I like basic wools and soft alpaca and pretty sock yarns. There’s a lot of yarns I like. I’m currently swapping for some Dream in Color Classy, a yarn that I like the look of but haven’t ever touched. I’m pretty happy to use yarns in my price range, and I do occasionally spring for a nicer yarn.

But there is one yarn (or I should say group of yarn) that I have coveted for ages. It’s not the yarn itself, per se, but the colors. Oh god, the colors.

I have a serious on Three Irish Girls. And not even the basic colors: I have a major crush on the Dye for Glory colors. Like this one:

I don’t even like pink. I certainly do not like orange. But oh lord, I want this yarn. I don’t believe I have ever coveted a yarn so much.

Can has?
