Last night I made my swatch in preparation for the first clue to the Mystery Stole in the Crystal Palace Kid Merino (taupe mix). It’s a beautiful, soft yarn, but isn’t doing the pattern justice. Luckily, I was smart and started a new ball instead of ripping out Kiri, so I can go ahead with that one later. 🙂
A darker color is recommended, and I think it needs a little more structure. Thus, a trip was made to the LYS and look what I got…
Gorgeous, chocolate brown (I am a harvest color girl) in soft, baby alpaca. It is Misti Alpaca
in natural dark tan. I am in love!! Of course, I haven’t swatched yet, and the first clue has been released, printed and is waiting for me to dive in. Can’t wait!!
