I do love the possibilities in an unknit skein of yarn. Golden angora – how lovely! Can’t wait to see what you do with it!

Is that more a lemony yellow or a buttery yellow? Even though I know it isn’t quite my color, I am wanting to knit something buttery yellow, I am specifically thinking of seeing if Araucania Azapa is available in a buttery yellow to make myself an Irish Hiking Scarf. Buttery. Yellow.
Or maybe something buttery for a cowl.

I’d say the yarn color leans towards mustard, but in a good french dijon way, I’m toying with lace backed gloves, hoping the fuzz will delicately fill the holes for warmth, but still allow the pattern to show…what ‘cha think?
I lost my butter yellow Malabrigo cabley mittens, so I shall have no pie…a buttery yellow scarf sounds tempting, things knitted with yellow wool keep you warmer you know.

oh how I love that shade…all shades of yellow most esp buttery, and ochre….and mustard…all except 70’s acrylic yellow. How about a nice little headwarmer, headband cabled thingie? Something warm and cozy round your ears.
