Whilst pondering what to with my Sea Stars from last week, I decided to try a couple in this Drops Delight 4 ply yarn.
I’m not always a huge fan of space dyed yarns – or at least I LOVE them when I see a skein but I’m not usually so fond of them made up. But I thought they might suit this crochet and give me some nice colour changes without having to invest in lots of different colours. I’m planning to make a largish scarf/wrap and I think this weight is more suitable than the Rico dk cotton. The one below is my favourite so far.
The main challenge I’ve found is that the yarn has dramatic variations in thickness but I’m hoping that will even out as character over the piece as a whole.
Unfortunately I’ve nearly run out and when I visited Wool Warehouse to try to buy some more I found this, which I thought I’d show to give a better idea of the colour.
