My birthday present from my Mom arrived today. Apparently she wasn't going to tell me and was going to hold on to it until Saturday but it's hard to keep a secret like this!
There are seven skeins of this lovely yarn - Madeline Tosh Merino in Kale -single ply worsted - soft and smooshy. In some light it's chocolatey brown, in other it has a red/purple hue, but it's oh so pretty.
I honestly wasn't sure what I was going to get when it arrived. On my computer it looked greyish/brownish/purple. I did some searching on the net and found some that was almost black, another that was more purple and one that was pink!(though I think she mislabeled her colour)
I am quite pleased with it though. I wound one ball up at mom's with full intentions of coming home, ignoring the squid sock, the house mess and starting my sweater. But I had some Wandering Cat business that couldn't be ignored and now it's almost time for bed and I still have to put the garbage out.
*Sigh* that means I won't be able to start it until at least Friday, as the next three days are long ones. C'est La Vie!
