Papaya Heaven...

One of my favourite colors from Tanis Fiber Arts is Papaya. It was part of last years Year in Color Club in the Red Label base. I love the base but it's a 1 ply and I'm not too keen on 1 plies even though I LOVE how soft it is. So it sat in my spare room on a shelf while I waited for that project that would do the yarn justice. 

Well... A couple weeks ago I litterally fell in love with mrsmommy's French Cancan. Since the Blogger App refuses to let me link it the web address is below: 

She made it with 2 skeins of Red Label. As soon as I saw it i just knew it would be rediculously soft and I felt that 'click' in my mind. 

The perfect match 'click'. 

I was able to find another skein of Papaya in the Tanis Fiber Arts ISO thread on Ravelry. Which totally made my day!! 

I know I have an obligatory project that I need to get done but SERIOUSLY ... how could I delay any longer? Everytime I looked at those 2 skeins I had a compulsive need to cast on a Cancan for myself. It was extremely HARD to hold out for what seemed like FOREVER... But in reality was probaly more like 4-5 days. So yesterday I gave in and casted on. I am totally LOVING it so far :-)

It's getting hard to put it down. I'm going to have to impose some knitting time on my obliglatory knitting project first before I can reward myself with knitting in my Papaya Cancan ;-)

Happy Knitting :-)
