|happy street by veera valimaki|
i was also out of luck. for a brief moment that is. i could not find the same colors of madelinetosh yarns that veera used anywhere. luckily my friend em of everything old fame lives in the same city as i do and we all happened to be discussing our new happy street obsession when she revealed that she was working on a new yarn weight - solo sock....yessss!!! a super soft, 100% superwash merino, sock weight, single ply, that she so sweetly and kindly offered to dye me up some in the same colorways as veera's happy street. yahoo!!! problem solved!
|haar, november and pinkie pie in solo sock from everything old|
we love my little pony in our house. like really love it. so my girls made me swear that i would take a pic of the yarn starring the oh so glamorous pink pie herself...lmao! i know, i know....i'm sorry em, i couldn't resist the lure of the pony. she batted those darn eyelashes at me and i just couldn't resist. she looks good with it no? the greys are also equally as gorgeous. both haar (the darker blue/grey tone) and november (lighter grey) have depth, and are both lovely shades of grey. i love me a good grey people! and even though em rocks with her colors her greys all stand on their own as well. the girls got skillz!
if you've been looking to get your hands on some yarn for happy street look no further. em has some of the same colorways dyed up and ready for you to bring on home! you can find her new weight of yarn "solo sock" for sale now and the colorways i purchased "haar", "november" , and "pinkie pie" in her shop now! trust me in that you won't be disappointed. we all covet em's yarns here and they are gorgeous!!!! thank you again em, for being so awesome and for allowing me to indulge in my latest obsession. xoxo

p.s. off topic... the online crafting community was saddened, shocked and devestated to hear of the loss of kathreen of whipup yesterday. she will be missed greatly. she touched the lives of so many - mine included. for those of you inquiring on how to help the children an Education Fund has been set up and you can find more information here on whipup. any help you can do to spread the word is so greatly appreciated. thank you in advance for your time and generosity.
