The Librarian

The yarn is so bright I gotta wear shades ...

Two skeins of Colinette Jitterbug (100% merino) in "Autumn Leaves". This colourway goes way beyond autumn (on this planet, anyway) ... though the initial visual impression is of the vivid yellows I think every colour that exists is somewhere in these skeins. :-) (Okay, I don't see any green. On the outside. But with Jitterbug, being handpainted with the colours overlaying and merging into each other, anything is possible once one gets inside the skeins) (Next day edit: found a couple of dark green spots on one of the skeins, where blue appears to have been accidentally dripped ... something that happens with handpainted and adds to their uniqueness ... in both instances right where yellow is transitioning to orange on the strand so that's why they're dark green instead of bright green
