Knittea: Ulmus and a Cup of Tea

Several weeks ago Hedgehog Fibres posted a photo on Instagram of her lovely new colorway, Teacup.

Hedgehog Fibres, Teacup

 

I was instantly smitten and had to have it.  What could be more perfect for me than Teacup yarn? In fact, I ordered twice, on two different bases.

Then I started looking for the perfect shawl, that would showcase the lovely yarn. I settled on Ulmus by Kirsten Kapur and paired my lovely Teacup with a skein of yarn by Colorpurl, an MCN in Dark Cochineal Cherry.

And then I knit a lot. And some more. And then a bit more. And this past weekend I was finally done.

I still love that Teacup.

  1. Teacup yarn is perfect for you! (And lovely to boot.) Of course you couldn’t pass that up…

  2. Your shawl has come out lovely. I like that you’ve featured the teacup yarn instead of the red one. It shows it off well!
