Yarn Love – Wol Cafe

I’m on a self-imposed yarn buying freeze, but I’ve been lusting after this beautiful Limited By yarn from Wol Cafe ever since I saw it at Breidag in March.

I couldn’t make up mind on the day which colour combination I wanted, plus it’s quite pricey, but life’s too short for bad yarn, right?  Plus, ever since I saw Wink’s Shawl Wars posts about the colours she has, it has been niggling and niggling at me.  That little voice telling me to just get it.

I really need a project in mind so I can justify it.  Help me!

Rainbow Cozy

Here’s something I whipped up the other evening on the couch.  I’ve been so in love with this rainbow yarn from Hjertegarn since I stumbled across it in my local yarn store last year.  But it was one of those yarns that looked beautiful as a ball, but terrible when made into anything.  In the end I managed to make a woolly hat for myself, and some gorgeous ombre owls, and finally the yarn has found it’s place in my heart as this beautiful mug cozy.

The colours work wonderfully together, and it was just the right length that I could miss out the mustard section of the yarn.

If you’d like to make this one for yourself, you can find all the instructions (for free!) here.
