Souvenir Yarn: Schoppel Edition 3 Fingerless Gloves and Malabrigo Silky Merino Dress Beanie

Maine for Amy Herzog‘s Make. Wear. Love. retreat and special yarn to remember it by.
I am lucky and glad I got to attend both a West Coast and an East Coast MWL. Both were wonderful events in BEAUTIFUL settings, Monterey, CA and Phippsburg, ME, with many joyful memories.

The colors caught my eye.

Schoppel Edition 3 in color 2296 English Garden
from KnitWit Yarn Shop in Portland, Maine
NOTE: No color repeat in two balls of yarn.

Unusual colors for me, I kept coming back to it as I wandered around the shop, I was charmed.  Easter eggs.  I convinced myself they could be cheery mittens on a cold, gray day.


The color caught his eye.

Malabrigo Silky Merino in color 472 Nocturnal
from Halcyon Yarn in Bath, Maine

My husband said he saw a good purple yarn, you know, “if you want to buy some yarn”. EmojiEmojiEmoji
Indeed, he had found this violet Malabrigo Silky Merino, silky intense color and luster.  I pointed out the silk content, not the usual stuff I use to make his hats.
We decided it would make a fine Dress Beanie, after all one needs to keep one’s head warm even on special occasions.
