NYMPHÉAS is the French name for a type of water lily, grown on the water for the beauty of their white, red, yellow or blue flowers. It is also the name given to a series of canvases painted by Claude Monet towards the end of his career. The theme of which was based on his flower gardens, especially the lily pads. I love this series by Monet!- Louise
I found this yarn to be a light, soft, beautifully dyed worsted weight wool that was a pleasure to knit. I had planned to take it home after a month-long stay in Québec City, but I couldn't resist knitting something right away. As mid-October was a bit chilly for this California girl, I cast-on for a cowl I could use immediately. A simple K4, P1 pattern repeated in the round and a bit of Kitchener stitch to seam it together and I had an infinity cowl I wore right away. It's gorgeous, warm, and I love it. I will be ordering more of this yarn for future projects!
