Although I've been able to resist most of Sundara's Year In Color offerings, I really had to indulge in June -- how could I resist the bluey-green loveliness of Mint Julep? I love this color. I have a shower curtain in this color. The cool vintage tile in my bathroom is also this color (well, really it's just old, but since I like it I call it vintage.) And since I was getting a few skeins of Mint Julep -- one in sock, one in Aran Silky Merino, and one in Worsted Merino -- I figured I'd better get a skein of Crushed Cherries sock too. The sock yarn will probably become socks, and the ASM and worsted will probably become cowls, hats, or other small accessories for this winter. I'm not sure if any of this yarn is destined to become gifts for the holidays, because I think I am probably too selfish for that. This is my color.
There was a period in which Sundara yarn was really hard to get, when updates would sell out in seconds. Fortunately it seems like she's been able to really increase her production, and now offers yarn in a few different ways -- the Year in Color, occasional collections, and of course Limited Edition updates -- and it doesn't immediately sell out. There's even limited edition yarn up for sale right now, and I just received an email saying that 10% of this month's limited edition yarn sales are going to be donated to the Seattle Animal shelter. I sound like a Sundara commercial, but honestly, I've got no affiliation aside from being a very addicted happy customer. So please...if you've been wanting to try Sundara, go buy some. Because if you don't, I will, and I'm really running out of room here.
