I thought it was gone forever

Then I found Armytage again.

The 'Side Saddle' colourway reminded me enough of the old 'Sticky Date' that I just had to order several balls of it and make more brown pears. Indeed, these are brown/white/grey pears, but I'm just as happy. I certainly could manipulate the striping to just get browns, but I quite enjoyed just knitting the pears and letting the colours fall where they would. The four below (pre-felting) are from a single ball.

I did order a few other colours as well. And now that I have confirmed it really is the same old Armytage, I won't be able to resist stocking up again soon.

Oh, I love Armytage. Those new colourways are not as monochromatic as the ones I used to be able to get here. I wonder if thata store will ship to North America? It might be worth paying the (sure to be) exorbitant shipping just to have some Armytage again.

That is such a beautiful photo. The colours of the amazing pears, the colour of the background and the crack in the concrete. It's perfect. Can I put a framed enlargement on a birthday wishlist? ily ma
