Eye Candy!

Yesterday was a very grey day here. It was raining when a package from Scout arrived. Honestly, when I opened it, the room immediately brightened! The colors were gorgeous! I grabbed it and took it with me to my Saturday morning knitting group for all to fondle and drool over. :) But I had to wait until today to take pictures of it, because, really, it needed a sunny day to show off properly. Isn't it gorgeous?!

And I couldn't resist another beauty shot:

Scout and I did a trade: I knit her a custom Bauble (the pattern is on Knitty) and she sent me a skein of laceweight yarn and a small hot pink GoKnit pouch. I love them both! Thank you so much Scout! The yarn is 1,000 yards of laceweight Zephyr wool/silk in the Puesta del Sol colorway. It makes my heart sing. And it's just perfect for this month's Project Spectrum!

Scout rocks.

Oh God, and yellow is my favorite color. The way you placed it on the purple tissue and green. Yes, you are certainly an artist. Looks good enough to frame.

Did I miss what pattern you are knitting with that gorgeous color?

What a gorgeous sight on the millionth (okay, maybe not that bad) grey, crappy day here in Montréal. I think I'm in love with that yarn. Way to go, Scout!
