Okay now isn’t this the most beautiful cranberry! I am about to cast on for my second Clapotis with this luscious yarn. I was winding it into a ball this morning and could not get over how gorgeous it is and how it felt. I can’t wait to knit with it. I know, I know . . . I’ve knit one before but only scarf size. I have alot going on in my life right now, which I’ll post about when I feel more comfortable, and I need a familiar pattern that isn’t so fussy and demanding . . . comfort knits. This time it’s gonna be full wrap size to show off this beautiful yarn. Oh, what yarn is it? Plucky Knitter, its a Cranberry flavored 100% Merino lace weight and it’s so amazingly soft . . . seriously soft. I did finish Wisp and need to find some dainty buttons for it . . . Etsy here I come. I may or may not block it. The Kidsilk Haze is suck a great weight for the Central Texas winters. It’ll keep your neck warm and still scrunch up into a small enough ball to stuff in your pocket or tote when the sun toasts things up after lunch.

Thank you! So glad you like it!
Yep, what you need right now is some mashed potato knitting – you said it, comfort food.
Oooooo…it is YUMMY! And, yes, it’s definitely comfort knitting & comfort food time! (Had mashed potatoes, meat loaf, okra & green beans — & biscuits w/honey — for dinner last night…hmmmm…tonite feels like time for mac’n’cheese.) Thanks, for your ‘cranberry’ reference, btw–I’m reminded it’s time to get a head start searching for my favorite dressing recipe: Shitake mushroom-wildrice-pine nuts & dried cranberries. Hey — I wonder, if by chance, I ever gave it to you? Luv & hugs, Retha
That is one of the juiciest colors that I have ever seen. I am looking forward to seeing it in your finished project. Enjoy the knitting/comfort time – snuggle in and lock out the rest of the world. (I’ll be doing the same in very cold Minnesota!)
