Blingin' Magenta...Absolutely!

I'm not much of a bling girl. But when I saw this on special months ago at the Dizzy Sheep, I absolutely wanted it.

Blingin' Magenta...absolutely
As for the's growing on me, it'll definately be a shawl though, have a few patterns in mind.

Absolutely Blingin'

Despite the bling, still pretty soft.
Blingin' Magenta
I've always liked burgundy type colors...guess it's the love of all shades of red maybe.

Dream in Color Starry
450 yds
98% Superfine Australian Merino superwash wool and 2% silver fiber
Colorway...wait...I've been giving clues....

Absolute Magenta!

One day, I'll knit a sweater with this colorway...not the bling, but the colorway ;)

(FYI, at 12 midnite every nite, there is a new special yarn, bag, or needles for sale...shhhh forget I told you, ok! ;)

So pretty!!! I've got some sock yarn with that silver fiber and it seems too nice to wear on my feet!

Fresh From the Cauldron made a similar yarn called "Silver Sock" --- I made socks. Love having a little bling on the feet. LOL

I love Starry. I have the jade and Midnight Derby in my stash. Can't wait to knit with them.

I'm not a shiny person either, but I own a skein of Starry in Dusky Aurora. Who knows what I'll actually do with it. I like yours too!
