What's better than a big bowl of Koigu gelato to cool you off on a summer's day? I can think of nothing. The ever-generous and always delightfully sassy Heather sent this delicious bundle of Koigu to me as a surprise summer treat. What Heather may not have known about me is that I have this secret soft spot for Koigu, but, strangely, I have never knit with it before (shocking, I know). Well, I've knit the ribbing of my fingerless mitts in semi-solid gray Koigu, but that's it. I do have a small bit of Koigu in my stash, but I've not yet knit with it. The thing with me and Koigu is that I tend to be warily suspicious of variegated yarns. I also tend to be overwhelmingly indecisive, and as Koigu comes in a enormously vast number of pretty, pretty variegated colorways, I tend to sit and drool over Koigu anytime I see it, but I never commit to any, being a semi-solid loving, indecisive kind of gal. So, it was especially wonderful to find this gorgeous fibery package in my mailbox. It's beautiful! And I love it most because it didn't involve any decision-making. I'm super excited to finally get to use some Koigu! And just in time to contribute to a fun new Flickr group, KooKoo for Koigu!
Thanks so much for thinking of me, Heather!
