This yarn is in the Playful Day colourway (it is a UK dyer that is how they spell). It is 100% BFL and a generous 400 meters. Sigh I love this colourway, I love BFL for socks, and it is so nice to get yarn in the mail.
If you get a chance (and you also like hearing about England and knitting) take a listen to Playful Day Podcast she is a very insightful woman and a joy to listen to. (No I am not just saying that because I won.)
Can I just say that I LOVE the logo for Abstract cat. I love simple line drawings and I wish that I could do them myself.
Guess what else I have considered I won? Ever since I was a little kid I have had the desire to paint a copy of Starry night by Van Gogh. One thing that was holding me back is that fact that I can not paint. The desire is there, but the talent is not. Maybe one day I will take a class. It will probably be far in the future, waiting until I have mastered Spanish enough to take a class here.
Anyhoo, I found out about a year or so ago that I CAN paint - just not with paints. I can paint with fiber, more specifically wool. This is an art form called needle-felting, and to borrow an expression from my British friends, "it does what it says on the tin"you felt the wool with a needle.
I feel like I have checked off a big "to do box" on my mental list of what I want to accomplish in life by finishing this thing. I think I might copy some Monet next.....
I will need some more felt but there are a ton of stores that carry felt (some have real wool felt) here, including a felt store on Calle Mayor I am going to have to check out soon.
