Just in Time for Valentine's Day...
...something to love.
I am captivated by anything with depth, saturation of pigment, hidden meanings of color. Beet, garnet, crimson. Ocean, sapphire, indigo. Pine, lime, pea. And even the orange I've rhapsodized over before.
Rich colors tell a story. They draw the imagination in and take us far afield from home - to rows of poppies, the seashore, the forest.
Apparently I was feeling a need for reds: behold my first yarn purchase of 2007.
You are looking at two selections of Koigu: some Kersti in colorway 621 and KPPM in 602. And the Malabrigo, so soft and delectable, is appropriately named Amoroso. Just in time for Valentine's Day.
