yarn


I’ve noticed that all my clothing seems to be in rather muted colours at the moment so I need something bright and hence the Cap-sleeved Cardigan from ‘Love to Knit’ by Bronwyn Lowenthal. I’m using Lion Brand Microspun in royal blue and it’s a really strong colour – I love it! I’m already done with the back piece and I’ve started on one of the fronts. It’s pretty quick and easy although I have managed to mess up the lace on more than one occasion.

And even more colour. I went to the LYS for a long overdue visit and I found some amazing sock yarn, which was dyed locally. It’s from Tanis Fiber Arts and it’s superwash wool with some nylon in a great colour (the colourway is Mallard). I seriously love it. I now need to find a sock pattern to display it in its full glory! This photo doesn’t really show the beauty of the colour.

A few days ago I received a package from Little Knits who are having a massive sale at the moment.

From the left: three balls of Cascade Fixation #5398, two balls of Regia Crazy Colour #5260, five balls of King Cole Big Value DK in Golden Mustard and one ball of Lana Grossa Meilenweiten Multiringel #5030.

I was kind of expecting a different colour for the King Cole but that’s what I get for ordering without a picture but I’m in love with everything else! Especially the Lana Grossa because I hadn’t realised that I’d ordered it so it was a nice surprise. I’ve already started on my first pair of Jaywalkers using it. Hopefully it will be enough for both socks.
