I used Periwinkle Sheep merino d k, a washable merino wool. It's the first time I made an entire project out of it, and I must say I really love this yarn. I mean I already love dyeing it -
and I had played with it a little, but now I got to knit with it and it is just wonderful. I easily can get 5 sts/in on a size 7 needle; I would say it qualifies as a light worsted and a dk weight yarn.
It is soft, has good yardage (225 yards/100g), loves the dye....and I love it on my needles.
I came up with a soft palette to complement the hydrangea in the sweater, so my customers would have alternatives.
|heather, lemon thyme, mauve, silver lining, hydrangea|
But then again, why not some brights?? I delivered these to Trumpet Hill the other day.
|periwinkle, hot pink, sunny yellow, turquoise|
I am uploading all these colors to my etsy shop one by one, starting today, and continuing over the weekend.
I will be out of town tomorrow, so I thought I'd give you a taste!
