New yarn for spring

I have no knitting to report this week, but do have some lovely new yarn.  So here is a drive-by post with pretty yarn photos.

Above is Eden Cottage Titus Lace, a silk and merino blend in the colour Black Magic Rose. This is intended to be knit up into a birthday gift for Emma, but I am not sure about the colour.  Since I haven’t been able to get into the shop, I ordered it online, and now think it may have a bit too much of a brown-ish tone and not enough purple.  It also has a bit more variation than I had hoped for.   I love the yarn, however, so will likely try again with a different colour.  Emma, what do you think?

Below are mini-skeins of fingering weight British Hampshire yarn from The Little Grey Sheep, in 15 gorgeous shades:

These are intended for another gift, about which my lips are sealed.  I am so in love with these.  I can’t wait to start swatching.

I hope that your weekend was sunny and full of yarn!
