YPF-The Grimm Pastel Version

I've been looking over some photos and I don't really think I have all that much pastels, except in baby yarns.

I seem to like more jewel, brighter, stronger colors as you've all seen here before.

But after seeing a pair of socks knit in this yarn, I came to appreciate it even more

I honestly can't tell you why either....

Could it be the pink or yellow?

002
Or hint of teal and brown....

blue or purple....

I give up and have absolutely no earthly idea, but I like it a lot! Not sure if it'll become socks or what.....

Now imagine the barn being filled with ALL of that as they were prepping for sock club shipments!! That's why I fell in love with it!!!

I say socks!!

I don't wear pastels but somehow this yarn - I love! I like the cute socks from that last post too!

For real, they must put something else in that yarn. I too am not a pastel-y yarn person, but I really like that!

I ended up with some pastel yarn as of late, and I'm not too sure what to think of it. (I like yours better)

PS - Pansy socks? They are so very cute!

It's gorgeous ---- it would make a lovely pair of Monkeys.

It is a pretty spring colorway. I like having it in my stash too.

I love the pastels...I see alot of socks being done lately with Socks that Rock...I think I just might have to order some for myself.

I usually don't like pastels, but every once in a while, a yarn calls out to me. Sometimes, it's not even in colors I would usually go for, but... there it is, pretty for some reason, wanting to go home with me. I know the feeling. Enjoy your yarn.

I'm not a big pastel person, but I bought that one as soon as I saw it. It is really pretty.
