YPF- Intertwined.....

The title may make you wonder where I'm going with this....read on!

Just a short year ago, this very busy indie dyer sold lots of variegated yarns. Now she's more into semi-solids (which I love even more!)
The Plucky Knitter
According to the listing it's Kettle Dyed - crimson, splashes of ebony, cream and peridot.
Peridot is my daughters birthstone, a ruby is mine (no surprise I love red then is there!)

The Plucky Knitter
It's soft, and squooshy, and I kinda like that it has both our birthstones in it, in addition to the black and gray. Daughter loves black and gray, and I don't mind them either.
The Plucky Knitter
Kinda neat something of the two of us in this skein...who knew. I was lucky and scored it from a destash a while ago. It wasn't until this post I realized how this resembles us in a few ways.

The Plucky Knitter
Sportweight Merino, Cashmere, Nylon (just love that MCN base!)
Kremlin Colorway
250 yds
