Warm Wool Fuzzies

Regardless of the weather outside, I always get a warm, fuzzy feeling inside when a new shipment of yarn arrives, like this Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift yarn I received in the mail today. 

Spindrift is a lovely, rustic, fingering-weight wool with a crunchy texture,  available in a stunning array of colors. The yarn color shown above is Oxford Gray and only one of several different grays and other colors I purchased at  Knitting Camp and during a recent Schoolhouse Press yarn sale (What, you didn't know about the sale? Well, then get thee to the Schoolhouse Press website and sign up for their online newsletter!).

I'm planning to use it for some color work, hopefully a cardigan, but also some smaller accessories.

Thanks for stopping by today, I'll be curled up keeping warm and knitting at least some of the weekend away - I hope you likewise enjoy a warm and yarn-y weekend! 


  1. Robin, your designs just keep getting better and better. That Amethiste shawl is a stunner!

  2. Ooooh, so lovely!! Such a beautiful shade of gray... and, I can almost "see" the crunchy texture. Thank you for the link. Enjoy your weekend, Robin! blessings ~ tanna

  3. In my world crunchy yarn is tops. Something about the organic feel of it makes me happy. Can't wait to see what beauties you create with it.
