I'm a fairly new knitter, but purchased, Knits from a Painter's Palette, because I'd seen a fashion show of Mia's work YouTube. I was in love. Most of the patterns were beyond me. Either in price, or ability, but what a book. I digress.
I purchased enough 829D overdyed, to make the scarf. The easiest thing in the book.
Jimmy Beans came over a weekend. Seriously, the order was in late Friday and I recieved it on Monday in Michigan. I own a soap business and no one delivers that fast. I have 17 wonderful suppliers for that business, but they don't push out deliveries so quickly. I have it. I smell it. I can smell the sheep. I love the smell of Lanolin, as long as it's not straight and going into soap, or hand lotion. The colors are intense and very me. My husband said they looked like no yarn was in the skein. He's been very surprised by how fast I am knitting and how much I have left of the three skeins. The YO Scarf shows off the color in a wonderful way.
I am now hooked, and will be planning another project soon. I love two other reachable patterns in the book and they are on my radar. What a pleasure to work with this yarn. I was thrilled by Jimmy Beans color range and frustrated because there are sooo many. My local yarn store carries six and they are some of the more subdued mixes. I am rarely subdued. I would buy this again in a heart beat.
