Sometimes I think I do better at enabling folks to buy yummy yarn than I do at selling patterns. Because this yarn? Yummy is not strong enough of a word. I’ve always been a fan of Gryphon‘s work, so when I decided to do this collection I immediately thought of her yarn. She did not disappoint. I told her the theme of the collection – think old books, parchment, rich leather – hence the Ink colorway of the Soy Beautiful. I don’t normally think of rusty pumpkin as the perfect color, but this is kind of perfect.
Oddly enough I took this picture on my brown leather sofa in indirect light from the back french doors. But the background seems to disappear and all you see is yarny goodness. And good it is. Mithril from the Verdant Gryphon is 4 oz. of the softest 100% merino that you ever did touch. It has 750 yards and is just a perfectly plied heavy laceweight.
So head on over to the Verdant Gryphon and get yourself your own skein of Mithril. Mine is in La Cantante – but she has all kinds of gorgeous available. Because the second of the Seven Sonnets will be released on August 1st.
