Dirty, Pretty things...
The name of the company that makes this is Lorna's Lace, which has always struck me as a titillating, vaguely dirty sounding name for a yarn company. It resonates on the same register as a Russ Meyers film; Lorna's Lace conjures up the image of a buxom blonde in a bee-hive hairdo and merry-widow, a whip in hand as she stands over her minions who dutifully spin her yarn. But I digress...after all this is a KNITTING blog.
This particular yarn is called 'Glenwood' and is a most lovely multi with a very soft hand. When I was in my LYS today I saw it and knew that ours would be a tale of lust and greed. I HAD to have it--and now it is mine. I have decided that I need to knit a hat out of this as soon as possible, given that I just had my roots done and my hair is the perfect ashey shade of blonde to show off these autumnal hues--quick, before my roots come in and the illusion is shattered! So like a heroine from the above-mentioned director's film, I find myself in a torrid relationship of which no good will probably come, but we'll have a hell of a time together.
