More yarny goodness

Picked up my shipment of Jitterbug at the local postal outlet about an hour ago ... lovely squishy vivid wool! While yesterday's Malabrigo is, as always, so soft it makes fluffy kittens feel like frayed steel wool in contrast, Jitterbug is also that soft plus so tightly spun that it feels like satin against the skin. Have spent most of the time since opening the package trying to get a colourtrue photo of the blue and have given up ... I know that some colourways require decades of practicing black magic and blood sacrifices to photograph and this is obviously one of them ***sigh***. So ... Colinette Jitterbug (100% merino) in "Lapis", "Sunflower Susie", and "Velvet Olive" colourways. Second photo is the official Colinette image of the "Lapis" colourway ... it truly is an eyesearing dark electric blue that wouldn't surprise me in the least if it glowed in the dark.
