The prize I received from Curlerchik arrived yesterday. This yarn is soooo beautiful. The photo doesn't do the yarn (or my lawn, for that matter) justice. The huge 200 g. skein contains 320 meters of NewZealand 10 ply wool handpainted by Jan Gilray. The main color is black rather than navy and the purple is darker. I have not yet decided what to make out of it but for now it is resting on the counter where I can pet and admire it. A thousand thanks to Curlerchik for her generosity.
