What do you think, can yarn be sexy? I think so.

New handspun – polwarth/silk.

This one’s more fun than sexy, but I made this little magic ball awhile back and decided to swatch with it. It’s quite short lengths of Koigu (probably 12-24″), Russian joined together to make a scrappy ball. (What’s a Russian join, you ask?)

I swatched with some gorgeously bouncy, round Targhee from Dirty Water Dyeworks, Johanna in colour Pond. Swoon. Itching to cast on for this sweater!

Sexy yarn samples! I think my favourite is Hat Box (superwash merino, silk, cashmere, fingering weight) but Steamer Trunk (plied superwash merino, worsted weight) would make an amazing sweater! I love the colour of this Satchel sample, too. Thanks Mrs. Crosby!

Sexiest of all? Handmaiden 4ply cashmere. Started a new cowl project that I’m quite excited about – it looks like double crochet but it’s actually knit!
