Road Trip to the Koigu Tent Sale

Koigu YarnsAlmost two weeks ago, we took a day trip to the Koigu Tent Sale. I promised last week to show you my acquisitions, and here they are!

Koigu is famous for their handpainted yarns in beautiful colourways. Their base yarn is called KPPPM, which means Koigu Painter’s Palette Premium Merino. The first thing I bought was a beautiful shade of KPPPM:

Here’s a detail shot of the colour, but it doesn’t begin to do it justice. There are so many subtle variations of blue, green and purple in this yarn. It’s amazing.Koigu KPPPM 446

The second thing I bought was kind of a kit. There were ten skeins of KPPPM in a similar colourway along with the book Wrapped in Colour. I had a peek through the book and liked several of the shawls—the two I like each take 5 skeins. Looks like someone planned that out! Again, the picture doesn’t do the colours justice. I’m having fun just putting them in different order to knit gradations: the three at the top left obviously go together, but the other combinations are less obvious.  Koigu KPPPM pruples

I’m determined to finish my Earth Stripe shawl before I cake up this Koigu and cast on another shawl.

What do you think of my choices?
