I found a hidden Stash!

I love it when I find small stashes of yarn that I would put away and then forget about! It’s like finding buried treasure 😀

I have 2 balls of this one yarn that I wish I could remember what it is! I remember getting them at Neighborhood Knits and they weren’t cheap either. They were hanging in hanks on the wall and I just fell in love with the look, feel and colourway of it. Unfortunately, after having to have to take the label of for them to be wound into the balls, I lost the labels 😦

This yarn is this beautiful jewel-tone of purples/greens/golds and it’s 2 different types of thin yarns very loosely twisted together almost like when you have 2 separate balls that you have to hold together to knit or crochet. One strand is a mohair and the other is a thin loopy rayon(?). I definitely have enough for a shawl of some sort! Now I need to find the perfect pattern for it!

The other is a single ball of Muench Yarn Cleo 87% viscose/13% metal also is a very pretty jewel-tone colourway of blues/greens/olive/bronze, very shine and sparkly. I think that I was thinking of using it to embellish something when I got it. I think that maybe it might make a very pretty and dressy headband if I can find the right pattern.
