The wonderful thing about indie yarn can be summed up in two words: gorgeous colors. It is rare to find the color combinations and unique dyes that the inde dyers use in commercial yarns. On the other, each skein is different which can be a positive or a negative. In this case, it’s a negative. The gauge of the blue yarn does not match the gauge of the orange yarn. Luckily, I found yarn in my stash that does match the gauge of the orange yarn: yellow Malabrigo.
The Malabrigo doesn’t jump out like the blue yarn did, but finding this yarn in my stash saves me from buying more Claudia hand painted yarn site-unseen and hoping that it will be the same thickness as the orange yarn.
