Song of the Sea

Mr. UPS came in this afternoon with three boxes from Lorna's Laces. It was like Christmas.
This is Masham in Arlington.
Masham Worsted is a hearty blend of British and Masham wool, hand-dyed in Lorna's beautiful colorways. Each fiber absorbs the dye differently, resulting in a marled look with wonderful depth of color. A warm and classically appealing yarn, Masham is an ideal choice for cold-weather garments like sweaters and cardigans. 

Masham - Northbrook

Sportmate in Northbrook.

Why two pictures of the same colour? To show how the various fibres take the dye differently.

I wasn't sure about this colour when I ordered it but now that I see it in full skeins I really, really like it.

A box came from Lynda today as well.

Pattern: Song of the Sea by Louise Zass-Bangham - purchased on Ravelry

Yarn: Metalico from Blue Sky Alpacas - 2 skeins each of Opal, Silver and Platinum

Needles: 3.75mm

For the yarn striping sequence, please take a look at inspiration's project on Ravelry...

It feels really nice around your neck. Really nice. I had a hard time leaving it in the store - it almost came home with me.

Now I must go. Survivor and Idol are taping and Beth is getting very vocal about my stopping and moving upstairs. She has actually started Idol without me.
