Dye-a-day #5: Cozy yarn for a chilly day

Wintery weather in Cambridgeshire - we had heavy, blowing snow this morning, and though it hasn't settled, the air is bitterly cold and damp and the sky is still grey.  It's just the sort of day to wrap up in warm, soft woollens - whether you're outdoors or on the couch - so let me present 'Cozy'!

This is a chunky singles yarn with low twist, dyed in mixed blues, purples and greens.  I've been working on some simple patterns in this yarn to showcase the lovely, saturated colours and squishy, warm texture.  Watch out for neck warmers, fingerless gloves and perhaps a hat or two in the near future!

My partner, J, chose the colours for this one, so until it finds itself another name, this colourway is "J's choice".  Oh - but the pink/yellow area at the top of the picture is one of those surprises that sometimes happens with dye - and all of a sudden, my manly man wasn't quite so sure he wanted his name associated with these colours, after all!

  1. Lovely yarn! And a little pink will only show off his manliness. ;)
