This is the red combination I had been dreaming about. Cherries. Chocolate Covered Cherries. I bought this Abundance from the web site. Not being sure about monitor accuracy, the color received is sometimes a surprise, but never a disappointment. What impressed me about the Abundance, besides the luscious smell of all Briar Rose Fibers, was that it had 850 continuous yards of lovely wool, without a knot to be found. My ball winder and swift had a workout. I had never knit with Corriedale before. I found it to be rather sticky, and had to pull it apart from itself during the knitting and winding. I think the stickiness (think velcro) would be an advantage if you're knitting with it double stranded. For this vest, shown in its unfinished state, I wasn't sure I could knit the largest size, lengthened with 850 yards, so I tweaked the numbers a bit and knit a single strand with a size 8 needle. I'll post my finished lightweight Rosebud in a few days. I have a fair amount of yarn left over. If you've ever stopped by my blog
, perhaps you can figure out what I'll do with the left overs, and who the intended recipient will be.
