The weather might be grey and dreary, but we have just received another shipment of gorgeous, luxurious and squishy yarns to brighten your day. And mine….

The yarn is truly luxurious. I can’t wait to dig my needles into it. Ravelry has great selections of project in Fingering weight yarn, so  you are sure to find something gorgeous. Here are a few ideas I have found so far.

You probably don’t need any more inspiration…..If you are anything like me, you have a mile long ‘favorite’ list on Ravelry, 124 + patterns in your queue and yarn in your stash for projects you will start one day. But then, I simply can’t help it….

Folded

While the temperatures are slowly getting warmer, I am leaning more and more towards those light, drapey yarns, flowing cardies with flattering lines. Not just for adults but also for children and babies. Fiona’s top is one of those great patterns that work equally well in wool and cotton. And the Adult version is just divine.
