This yarn was inspired by walking in Tennessee woods. We have a very beautiful piece of land in TN. Ponds, streams, variety of trees and bushes on TN hills. I love to be there.And one day:
" I wandered lonely, as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills
When all at once I saw a crowd
A host of golden daffodils...."

Who can say better then Robert Burns???

But here in Tennessee I saw a crowd , a host of red cranberries.Yes, a lot of them, so innocent and beautiful .Have you ever seen wild cranberries? We have a lot of them here in TN, come we will pick them together. HAHAHA. Bright green leaves and many many red beads. HAHAHA.

Now you know how this yarn was born.

First I handdyed the shetland fleece. I used food dye, ( Easter dye for eggs), no harm done.

Shetland came out in this very rich live green color.

I spun shetlant first (Green color).
Then ply with a lace type light green yarn. I put a lot of cranberries ( wooden beads) on it.The wooden beads are hand made by my Amish neighbor, Danny, he runs wooden shop ,then I hand painted them. (My wild Tennessee cranberries) .
The green color lace thread is from Ukraine, they use that lace thread to decorate NATIONAL UKRAINEAN BLOUSES, crossstiching.
Then ply them both.
It is very soft, will be nice for anyone who loves soft yarn. And Thanksgiving is coming, everybody needs cranberry with turkey. HAHAHA.

Nice and clean , ready for you to take over and create a masterpeice and remember I never tension or stretch my yarn. I dry my yarn outside, lay flat, and water just dripping , it smells nice with fresh Tennesse air.

Made in my smoke free home. Thanks for looking in my shop. Lusy
