The Secret...

is out!

Romi of Designs by Romi is designing a shawl with my yarn. Romi choose the first colorway combo pictured and I cannot wait to see the finished design. I have no idea, well, no more idea than any of you readers, what she is doing with it. I only know what she posts on her blog...it's kind of fun being in on the anticipation with you.

Here are the colorway combos that I paired up for the release of this latest pattern from Romi.  I really don't know how she does it; one great pattern after the next!

All of this yarn is Opulence Fingering, 80/10/10 Superwash Merino/Cashmere/Nylon. It has a great tight twist and super soft and squishy!

Coyote Trail & Dawn Pink 
(Romi's brilliant color combo choice)

Smoldering Red & Halifax Shore
(Halifax Shore is an old favorite, but jazzed up a bit for this special pairing.)

Symphony & Tropica

Citrus Orange & Up North
(Up North was inspired by a recent trip up north (Duluth, Minnesota) in the peak of autumn.)

Greek Olives & Cabernet
(This pairing is a special one; my Mom choose these for a Kleio about 1.5 years ago. She is the only only one with the combo and gets so many compliments I had to go with it.)

The photo of my Mom's Kleio is not the greatest, but you get the idea. It was also dyed on a mostly alpaca yarn so it is lighter than the Opulence, which is mostly a superwash merino.

Where is it available you ask?? Jimmy Beans Wool has it all in collaboration with Designs by Romi.
