Quick! Quick!

If you've been itching to get your fingers on some of The Verdant Gryphon's new yarn, Mondegreen, the time is now!

Remember, this is the lovely 60% BFL wool, 20% silk, 20% camel blend worsted weight yarn that I used for my Beribboned Hat design. (Which is on sale for 10% off on Ravelry for another 2 weeks with the code 'yayseptember', fyi.) It would work just as well for my free Beribboned Wrists pattern, too, which has been going around to various knitters through VG's super fun Nomadic Knitting project. It has nice twist and density from the BFL, a lovely sheen from the silk, and softness from the camel that counteracts some of the wool's potential scratchiness. It's really, truly lovely. Since today is the first day this yarn is available, it will probably sell out quickly, so I'd jump on it if I were you (and not saving for Rhinebeck, sigh).  But fear not, it will be available for the next 6 months and there will be plenty of loveliness to go around.

Is there anything more exciting than lovely, delicious new yarn? Perhaps... I'm pretty psyched that my new kitten Darwin and older cat Calypso are finally getting along:
A tenuous peace.
We can haz friendly relashunz?
I'm quite proud of my kitties, actually. It took a full week but Calypso is tolerating him much better than before. Darwin still needs to learn some limits but he's responding pretty well. Yay for peace!


  1. Awwww. That is one of the cutest photos I have ever seen! I'm very glad to hear that they are making friends, they will be having little play fights before you know it! Also that colorway, it is just gorgeous, I think I love it more each time I see it.

  2. I love that second picture of your kitties! And the yarn looks lovely, but not for me right now...I'm on a yarn diet since my bin won't close! I am going to start back up on my beriboned wrists this week though, now that I got the hats out of my system!

    1. Yeah, I'm trying not to buy any either. Yay, can't wait to see!

  3. Oh no. I've just finished a bunch of projects and at my weakest for buying new yarn. That is such a tempting blend and color.

    1. It really is! I am nothing if not a shameless enabler.


I love reading your comments, thanks for stopping by!
