New Yarn In Town

Who would have thought that just an hour away there is a whole new brand of yarn available in 72 colors? No, this is not a joke. Nor is a dream. It is true all the way to the knitting needles.

I have always been missing such a yarn here. Now it is here. Karmin Supersoft is not unknown as yarn type. It is mostly the same as Holst Supersoft and most of the other supersoft yarns you can find.

Photo from the shops Facebook profile - 72 colors
But the color range is spectacular. 72 colors are not available other places than online from Denmark.

And that has been so great - but the photos of the colors are mostly not correct and shipping to Norway is a whole other story.

Anyways, I give my salute to Karmin who dare do something that other yarn shops are far from doing. Especially in smaller places. Knitters around here are lucky indeed. You find the shop in Kristiansand.

I found a red orange color, sort of. I cannot decide what color it is as it shifts with the light. Maybe it is called burnt orange - or not.

Anyway, I have started my 11th Viajante with it and just love the feel of the yarn. Thin wool yarn is perfect for almost anything and the garments gets so light.

And no, I am not sponsored. I would never have said this if I did not mean it. I am just happy that this yarn is available near by. The list of knitting projects suddenly turned extra long...
Started on my 11th Viajante...

  1. Love that color! Den dybe, smukke, røde ....
    Sikke en dejlig reol... jeg ville gå helt i koma og bare stå og kigge! Det er da så herligt, at I kan få det tynde fine garn i Norge nu. Og lige i dit nabolag...
    Men nr 11 Viajante... Tror du ikke, du snart skal søge hjælp... ;-)
    Rigtig god rød strikkefornøjelse.

    1. Tusind tak Anne :-) Ja, tænk om man havde sådan en hjemme... Det er skønt at det findes i alle de farver og så bare en times biltur væk. Luksus i norsk målestok :-) Jo altså, jeg er blevet udskrevet - der er vist ikke noget at gøre med den Viajantefixation jeg har som diagnose... Måske nogle kan opfinde en pille... He he :-)

  6. Wow, what a feast for the eyes! The only problem I see with that yarn is selecting what color to try next. I know you favor the reds, oranges, and turquoises, but those purples and corals are just yummy! Hope the finished piece lives up to your expectations!
