Athens Yarn

Cristi sent me a note about some fab grey yarn she had seen in an etsy shop.  She had met the dyer earlier and liked her a lot.  Thought I would definitely want this yarn.  Thought right.

I checked the etsy shop and saw the Lotus Yarn dyer was from Athens–where I was headed in a few hours, so I emailed a plea to come and touch.  Melanie quickly said call and you can drop by–I did and this is what I got.IMG_2791

Sock yarns in tone on tone solids.  Maybe fair isle?

Steve picked this sport wt. yarn with a bit of cashmere.

This yarn is so rich in color and soft to touch that it may become shawls.  So many possibilities.  Check out Melanie’s etsy store and also we look forward to hosting her for a Charlotte Knitting Guild Meeting in the spring.
