I love a little bling now and again. This yarn is our Sparkly base. It is Superwash Merino with a touch of Lurex. Lurex it the silver metallic thread that is plied within this yarn. Sparkly is fingering weight. Each skein is 400 yards. It is so versatile. You can add it to a shawl. You can make a top or sweater out of it. You can of course make some super special socks as well.
What I love about Sparkly is that the metallic thread is plied so well. It does not worm it’s way out of the yarn. It stays within the yarn. And did I mention the bling?
Last week was momentous in our country. And I have to say that I was inspired by several things. The moving memorial to those who have succumbed to Covid. Washington’s sky deepening into night with the Washington Monument going from white marble to gold stone.
The next day I loved the array of colors from all the women who attended the inauguration. From Michelle Obama’s burgundy pantsuit and long coat to the pastel coats of the Biden girls. And of course Dr. Biden in her blue sparkly ensemble. I just loved the power of the color. The statements that women will not be overlooked.
