I've been spoilt

Recently I have been chatting with Rhonda , another of the moderators over on the Knit-a-square forum on Ravelry , about the lovely yarn she has been using for her charity knits – (she lives on the other side of the pond you see), and she very kindly offered to send me some to try.

So after stalking the postman for a day or two, a squidgy parcel of loveliness arrived.

Not one, but three! gorgeous skeins of Araucania Aysen in two beautiful colour ways. I do wish you could feel it, it is so soft and squishy, and it even smells soft!
Well being merino, alpaca and silk I guess it couldn’t be anything else but wonderful. I am so lucky, and I'm looking forward to deciding what to knit with it.

Now all I can say is if yarn like that is affordable for charity knits in the US – I think I need to emigrate :0)

Me too! Beautiful yarn....

I'd normally use acrylic for a charity knit.
