That yarn that I had been waiting for finally arrived. And I am totally in LUV. I want to knit an entire wardrobe of this yarn. I want sheets knitted from this yarn. I want to wrap myself in it from head to toe.

The object of my affection is Sanguine Gryphon Gaia Fingering.

This is a brand new yarn for Sanguine Gryphon. It is a grown up version of their Gaia Lace. It is a 40% cashmere/ 60% silk blend. This color is so new it doesn’t even have a name. My photo doesn’t show the color accurately. It is much richer and more beautiful in person.

Here is the swatch for my latest design.

Looks surprisingly like stockinette stitch, doesn’t it? It has been a pleasure to knit. I wish you could all feel this yarn. It is scrumptious. You will be hearing more about this yarn as the design takes shape.

    Oh my goodness! I think I’m in love… shhh… don’t tell Mr. Bubbinsky… it’s beautiful and it looks like it knits up beautifully and I can’t wait to know what you’re designing with it. (That’s one long-winded run-on sentence, isn’t it?)
