I bought some yarn in January, several balls/skeins in some lovely yarn bases.   At the time I had a project in mind for each of them, and I used 3 of the balls within the last month.  But I was a bit disorganised and didn’t write down just what I intended to use all the yarn for!

So today I looked at the remaining yarn.  It is rather luscious.  I have 6 balls, 2 each of 3 colours, of Rooster Almerino DK.  I used Rooster Almerino Aran to remake the Lace and Texture Cowl, it is a lovely yarn base, soft and fabulous to work with.  So  I will have had a good use for it…..but I can’t remember!

The 3 colours are lovely together, a touch autumnal:


The colours are Starfish (top), Sandcastle (bottom left) and Hazelnut (bottom right), I like the combination.  So whether I can remember the original purpose or not, I know I will enjoy hooking some magic with these 🙂

The other 2 skeins are Cascade 220.  These are in a colour called Shrimp and, for me, these are very pink!   I don’t use pink normally, so I would have something unusual in mind.


This is a worsted/aran weight, so will hook up quickly.

What do you think?  Are they luscious or yummy?  And what would you make with these yarns?

Happy crocheting xx
