I'm a little late blogging about this week's yarn thanks to the RSI, but I'll leave it open for a couple of extra days, too, to make up for it!
This week's yarn is a glorious skein of Corriedale Sportweight from Old Maiden Aunt Yarns. It's lovely and woolly and is hand-dyed in the subtlest shades of pale blue and lilac. The colourway is called "Cold Sheep" and it is so gentle on the eyes.
AS it's a sportsweight yarn you'll want to be mindful of gauge when looking for Woolly Wormhead patterns to knit it with. First thoughts would be something like Corella or Half Theory - both of these would look stunning in this colourway, and the stitch definition would be fantastic for cables and lace. It would be perfectly suited to Bellefleur too, or perhaps Encircle. Alternato or North Lyme are great suggestions if you prefer something a little slouchy, and again you'll have that wonderful woolly stitch definition.
Isn't that colour wonderful?
As with previous weeks, leave a comment below with your Ravelry name, your choice of pattern and why, and don't forget to fill in the relevant email field so I can get in touch. I'll leave this draw open until wednesday 10th August, and I'll select a name using the random number generator thursday morning.
