This yarn is red and it looks so red that I would think that this little beauty has the power to turn a whole load of laundry to pink in just seconds. But I love the color and won't be putting it in the wash.
This Manos del Uruguay is just waiting to be wound into a little yarn cake and knit up. It is 100 grams and 138 yards. The color is listed as 115 - but it would seem that just saying red would work too.
The intense red makes me think of Valentines Day too. Although it doesn't hurt that every store you go in has Valentines displays and candy everywhere.
Speaking of candy, Hershey's has a couple of great limited edition Kisses out too. I don't even usually like Hershey's Kisses, but they have a dark chocolate raspberry flavored one that is great. I keep setting them out on my desk at work and they keep disappearing. The other is one that is filled with a cherry cordial creme. My husband just loves them; his favorite candy is chocolate covered cherries.
I have set this skein aside to make Calorimetry. It will be my next quick project right after I finish knitting the Irish Hiking scarf you all talked me into making last week. When I got home from work last Friday and read all your comments and votes for the Irish Hiking Scarf, I cast on. I'm hoping to be able to finish it this weekend.
