Doomed again ...

I'm going to have to buy some Blickfang ... saw it at the yarn shop opening I went to in June and have kept thinking about it all summer ... it's just so fascinating-looking as well as having those delicious rich colours. (and at least I can now "justify" it because I found a sweater pattern in one of my magazines that I a) have really liked since I first saw it a couple of years ago, and b) requires yarn with some texture in exactly the size of the Blackfang. Definitely fated to be.
