January is my favorite period of the year for knitting. I always take advantage of the winter sales to redo my stock and find great wools to knit. This month I found two wonderful yarns
from Phildar, called "Tornade" and "Strass Light". I bought several yarns in different colors, but for this post I will mainly talk about the colors called "Artifice" for the "Tornade" yarn
and "Œillet" for the "Strass Light" yarn.
