This month’s second yarnie is Sweet Paprika Yarns. This delightful yarn company was formed by a pair of sisters in Montreal. I’ve admired their yarns at shows for a few years now. I bought some lovely DK weight yarn from them a while back, but I can’t show you that just yet because it turned into a different pattern! I can show the lovely selection of yarn that you might see if you happen by their booth at a festival:
If you aren’t lucky enough to visit the yarn in person, you can visit the Sweet Paprika Ravelry group instead.
I chose the delicate Café au Lait colour in Messa di Voce for the fingering weight version of the Hockey Scarf. It reminded me of the yellow bricks of Maple Leaf Gardens in the shade. I love how this drapes in a lighter weight yarn – but it’s still got the squish factor from the thickness of the fabric:
Sweet Paprika yarns will be making a return to my Canadian Art Deco Knits ebook later this year. I’ve got two versions of October’s hat to share with you: DK weight and fingering weight.
