Not your basic black!

When J.P. was in town over the weekend, he brought a little something to me. And it is too pretty not to share!

Cristi, J.P. and I put in an order with BMFA and had it delivered to him with the promise that he would hand deliver it.

And wow is all I can say. I got the silk thread in the Ravens colorway Tlingit which has hot pinks and chartruese with blacks over it and the greens and pinks just POP under!

In some lights it looks black...

I have wanted to knit the Icarus shawl for awhile and I think that this may be the yarn for it, though I am open to suggestions.

Because this yarn is too pretty to sit in my stash for long.
