Cupcake yarn.

I went to the Edinburgh spinning Guild today, and most unexpectedly met Natalie of The Yarn Yard there. It must be well over 18 months since we've both been at the same meeting, and since then The Yarn Yard has really taken off from modest beginnings to being very well known both here and abroad for her luscious hand dyed yarns and rovings.

I scrounged a tiny sample (3g!) of what she had on her spindle. No idea of the nigh on edible colourway, but it reminds me of spring crocus. (I predict an expensive trip to her online shop in the near future...)

I was determined to make the most of it, and eventually persuaded the Louet to spin finely enough to give me 14 yards of this light sock weight.

Cute or what? Real little yarn cupcakes. Ohh, and these colours!
