This is a pretty cool picture. You need to click on the picture so you get the larger version. On the left side is Cascade Pastaza. On the right is the same color in Cascade 220. I don't know why, but I really like Pastaza. I love the sheen it has, and I enjoy working with the yarn. It does itch if you wear it next to your skin, and you get a little warm, but you cannot beat it for cardigans, hats, vests and so on.
and the way it takes the dye colors is just mouth watering.
Top row is #9842 Coral Beach.
More colors are coming!
The first bag on the left is Pastaza #9921 Caribbean Sea. Don't you just love the colors!
Soon I'll have the missing colors in both lines. I do stock all the colors in Pastaza and Cascade 220 whether they are good sellers or not.
Up in the upper right had corner you see the backs to 2 of the baby vests I'm working on. Yes, my patterns take eons to complete. This cold really set me back. Yesterday afternoon while my Friday group was here, I was able to wire the backs. After everyone left, I blocked them. That's my blocking board you see under the bags of yarn. This morning, I removed the wires and set them aside so I could take the pictures I promised you this morning.
These colors are not quite up on the Pastaza and Cascade 220 yarn pages. But they will be by Sunday evening.
Now I must skedaddle because I have a lot of orders to ship out for a Saturday morning!
