This beautiful wool arrived last week.
I ordered the wool on the internet from a Norwegian website and I realise now that the colours you see on your screen may not necessarily match the real thing. The yellowy skein is luminous in reality, not at all what I had imagined but I think it will look ok when knitted up. Abuelita Yarns are Uruguayan yarns that have been hand dyed. I know, I bought the yarn from Norway why didn’t I buy it from Uruguay, that’s another story!
The yarns were named Abuelita (Granny) This extract, taken from their blog, explains why:
“Grannies are transmitters of family and cultural identity. She gives perspective to future generations, a point of start from which we can carry on. A Granny symbolizes the archetype of the wise women. She has cultivated through love and tenderness, the passion for life and the ability to reinvent herself day by day. With an open mind and hard work, she gives us the elements to work with, she contributes with the essential moral values necessary to make the right decisions. She is the one that teaches us how complaining lead us nowhere, and shows us how to apreciate what we have. With intuition she can always show us the right path to follow. But above all, she is the kind of granny we identify with: energetic, loving and tender. She is the inspiration of Abuelita Yarns. Welcome to our Blog and Forum, I hope we can get us know better. Enjoy!”
Wow! No pressure on you granny.
The web site for Abuelita Yarns is here. I will post at a later date what I have planned for the wool. I had not intended to buy anymore wool as I was trying to reduce my stash but I couldn’t resist this particular pattern and I wanted the right wool.

It is beautiful yarn.
It is very soft and the pattern I am knitting is a loose knit so it is very snuggly.
