I love raku pottery so the name of this color drew me in from the start. The colors made it a definite purchase, now I'm just trying to decide to what to cast on with this yarn. Socks are a posibility, but there is Elemmaciltor's Monte Carlo Scarf that is getting my attention too.

I should be back to more regular blogging next week. I had oral surgery this week and just haven't felt up to doing any posting.

LOL, it's weird that you linked to my other Flickr/Blog (Elellanyar). Can you please change the link to go to my Elemmaciltur stuff? Thanks!!!

Hope you are feeling better very soon. The yarn is just stunning. Do you order directly from her website, or is there an American distributor? I have to get my hands on some of that. Her colors are just gorgeous.

Ugh, oral surgery. Hope your feeling better. The yarn is beautiful. I'm with your Mom, I think the Montego Bay Scarf is a great idea. In fact, I might have to get myself some Raku-Regenbogen. I wonder if the Loopy Ewe will have that colorway.

That is one kickin scarf! I think you should make it! Sorry about the oral surgery, I hope they gave you good drugs.

Bezzie said...

I'm going to have to agree, I think that would be a good pattern for that yarn.

Hope your mouth feels better soon!

I had oral surgery a couple times. Dr. Schneeburger. Hope your surgeon had name that sounded less like a muppet and more like a responsible surgeon! =) Hope you feel better now so you can get to knitting that gorgeous yarn!

Monika said...

This is amazing yarn! You should feel lucky! I hope you feel better soon!

My parents do dentistry and oral surgery for a living. I knew it had to be bad when my dad sent me to one of his colleagues to have my wisdom teeth removed because "I just can't do that to my own kid." Hope you feel better soon!
That yarn... beautiful.

Love the yarn. I vote for socks. The scarf is interesting, though. Sorry to hear about your surgery. I know how painful that can be. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Bobbi said...

ok seriously I have yarn envy, you always have the best yarn! I love that Wollmeise! Their colors are so vibrant!

I'd have to agree that you are killing me with the Wollmeise. Its taking all my willpower (and I have sooooo little!) to not send her an email and begin the ordering process.

This color is absolutely gorgeous!!

Dipsy said...

Oh my gosh, this yarn is totally to die for! I've heard so much of "Wollmeise" before but haven't yet ordered anything from there - now after seeing this beauty, I will do that soonest possible! Adorable colorway!
