Where I got it: Magpie gave me this skein to design with at Vogue Knitting Live New York, 2018.

My Thoughts: This is a pretty classic MCN - buttery soft, smooth, and sweet to work with. The variegation in this particular color is on short sections, so the color changes a lot.
What I might design with it: I also grabbed a dark grey skein and I'm really looking forward to some colorwork with this. I think it'll look really amazing paired with another grey.
Where you can get some: Check out the Magpie Fibers website. There are a lot of great colors, including some really tempting variegated-s.
