Several years ago the color Amy's Vintage Office was created by knitting guru Amy Singer of Knitty.com. It just so happens that Amy is allergic to wool and at the time all of Lorna's Laces yarns contained some amount of wool. Read the full description...
I have been struggling with severe yarn lust since the Olympic games in Sochi, and today, my long-awaited package arrived: nearly breathless, I opened my package and found pure spun gold in my hands. This is the most beautiful colorway, the most luminous yarn I have seen in ages. I don't know if I should actually wind the yarn and do something with it, or just keep the skein near me at all times to pet and snuggle with, so gorgeous is this magical stuff.
I plan to make the Yorkshire Scarf with it, a pretty little triangular shawlette I've made before, calling for 200+ yards, so this is perfect.
Thanks, Jimmy Beans, for the most beautiful yarn in the world!
I used a skein of this to knit the 198 yards of heaven triangular shawlette pattern, and it was a nice match. The lace is simple enough that it worked with a multi-colored yarn. And what colors--such beautiful blues in the Royal Wedding colorway. The yarn was easy to work with, the bamboo and silk giving it a lovely handle. A good choice for a special one-skein gift.
Amy's Vintage Office-colorway. I made the Scallop-edge Beaded necklace using this colorway and nickel hemitite colored beads from the 101 Designer One-Skein Wonders book. It came out better than I expected. I'm not a big fan of the texture of wool, I prefer just about any other fiber except acrylic to wool. So, you can't go wrong with the texture and sheen of the silk in this yarn.
This yarn is gorgeous! The colors are deep with a beautiful sheen and it has that raw silk smell :- Haven't knit it up yet, but I have a couple of lace scarf projects in mind for it. I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to acquire a skein of this stuff using my Jimmy Beans bucks and free shipping coupon. It was a great deal!
