Happy Sunday! Past week I’ve got two packages that made my heart sing. First is a beautiful rambouillet & merino blend by YOTH yarns – Daughter. I worked with 100% rambouillet and 100% merino before, but never had a chance to try them in a blend. Daughter has a nice spring to it, creates great stitch definition and drape; and this neutral color – Natural Vanilla – got my heart, I see some textured sweater coming – just so inspiring!
Along with delicious yarn, I was lucky enough to receive the most wonderful gift from my boss – a coffee table book New York. Portrait of a City. This is an absolute treasure, it is not just a book with pretty photos, but the actual story of the city with rare images from “over 150 celebrated photographers from the mid-19th century to the present day”.
“This book captures the feeling of the streets, the sidewalks, the chaos, the energy, the ethnic diversity, the culture, the fashion, the architecture, the anger, and the complexity of the mythical, mystical Big Apple.“
As for Daughter, it is coming with me to Russia!! I am so excited to bring it on my trip, get inspired by my home country and, of course, share it with my Grandma and say to her once again – Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking me to this tiny yarn store 9 years ago, it made such a huge difference in my life.
I hope you are going to have a wonderful day today!
