I have already mentioned how much I likeVickie Howell Sheep(ish) yarn by Caron! The perfect roving that mix acrylic and wool and enhance the stitches. The color pallete is perfect!

Nothing could ever describe that tiny moment we catch our breath because of an unusual blend of colors on a hand died yarn or the unpretentious beauty of a yarn that has been in the market for long. Nothing can really describe the speed of though when the soft touch of a yarn brings up affective memories and awakens the feeling of ease! Read more
