Monday Magic: June 25 2012, Pretty Pretty Yarns

After a brief hiatus, I'm bringing my Monday Magic posts back! This week, I chose three yarns from Etsy that I absolutely love. There are loads of gorgeous hand spun and hand dyed yarns available on Etsy and it was difficult to choose just three.
This beautiful pale green/blue fingering weight yarn is called Mermaid Tails. It's made from superwash merino and Tencel, and just looks so so so soft! When I first looked at it, I noticed the blues and greens right away. But when you look at it more closely, you notice the yellows, pinks, purples and oranges throughout it. I think this would make a really pretty shawl or stole.
This pretty grey yarn is from Gynx Yarns. I've been ogling her yarns for aaaages. She has some awesome colorways, and even more awesome names for them: Margarita on the Rocks, Ice Cream Sundae, and Wonka just to mention a few. Another great thing about her yarns is that they are organic. This skein in particular is one of a kind. It's mostly grey with blue and purple throughout. It would make a beautiful textured slouchy hat or pair of socks. Check out the Gynx shop on Tuesdays for updates with new items.
Last but certainly not least, are these wonderful skeins of aptly named Acid Washed Jeans. That was the first thing I thought of when I saw them. They are a pretty merino/silk blend that I think would feel fantastic worn against the skin. I would probably knit a cabled cowl, or maybe some fingerless gloves out of this. Maybe both? Who knows! There are three skeins available, so definitely lots of options.

Don't forget! If you want to see one of your items in a future Monday Magic post, leave me a comment, send me a message on Etsy, or shoot me an email. You might see one of your items here in the future!
