Putty (in my hands)

I am not certain that I have enough time, but I am considering a new design submission with this yarn.  This is a skein of Wool Clasica, by Manos del Uruguay, which I won in the Wool Clasica design contest.  It is the color 'K', which is named 'putty'.

I have a little inkling of a feeling that I might know what this yarn wants to be.  Anni Albers said, “Being creative is not so much the desire to do something as the listening to that which wants to be done: the direction of the materials.”  This yarn is singing something soft and low and solid and smooth and I am trying to hear it.  Putty...


  1. I love low twist singles! That looks so cozy on this chilly Monday morning!

  2. Wonderful looking yarn. I can't wait to see what you do with it.
