Stash Enhancement: Debbie Bliss Cathay

While shopping on line for sock yarn today I also purchased some balls of Debbie Bliss Cathay in a lavender/blue colour. This is a cotton/silk blend yarn which I want to make into a wrap, so I'm hoping it will drape nicely.The yarn is not actually for me. It's for a gift I'm making for a friend. I can't say much more 'cause I'm sure she's lurks around here from time to time.

I never would have imagined six months ago that I would be saying this but I love Debbie Bliss yarns (apart from the angora blend!). I also love Noro yarn and would have loved to have extended the budget to include some Cash Iroha or some Silk Garden. I also liked the look of the new Ganpi Abaka which is a tape yarn. Actually, I would have settled for any of the Noro yarns. There's just something about the colours that I love.

Miss CB is having 2 friends to stay tonight. Meanwhile I'll be socialising alone with a glass of chilled white wine and maybe even a bar of chocolate!

Wish me luck.
