This week I had the great good fortune to play with Scrumptious, a super-dreamy yarn which is being distributed in the USA by Lantern Moon.
Scrumptious is an unusual blend of 45% Silk and 55% Superwash Merino. As you might expect with that fiber content, this yarn has an extraordinary sheen and luster. It's available in a nice range of different weights, so it was hard to pick my favorite. I chose a gorgeous, ropy Aran, and my favorite weight for almost everything in knitting, Sport.
I made some swatches and some sketches (I still cannot believe I get to do this for my JOB!), and then went back to Lantern Moon with my ideas.
Would you believe it? Lantern Moon has trusted me with the first-ever American designs for Scrumptious! The first samples will debut at TNNA in June, with availability of the whole mini-collection coming to you this fall.
If loving string is wrong, I don't wanna be right.
