Mmmmm… Yarn

Here are the yummy skeins I got from Curious Creek Fibers.

Bright and yarn-a-licious

Left to right you can see Arusha in Early Sunset (50% silk, 50% merino), Etosha in Sunrise on Daffodils (90% kid mohair, 10% nylon), Omo in Savanna Grasses (50% silk, 50% merino), Oban in Tilting the Gizmo (50% silk, 50% merino), and Isalo in Anemone (100% silk). Not surprisingly, the photo doesn’t do them justice—the colors just glow.

I don’t want to say too much about my projects until they’re done, but I definitely want to go back to the strategy I used on my Santa Cruz Hat and write at least one pattern that can be adapted easily to any gauge.

A warm and cozy wrap

…my Cabled Capelet knit up in Malabrigo (Col China colorway). This pattern went quickly and easily (aside from a few problems with clarity regarding the decreases, which weren’t too hard to figure out). I ended the neck a bit early because it was already plently long enough without working all the rounds. I am definitely keeping this piece for myself, but I expect I’ll be knitting up another one soon for my niece. The malabrigo is wonderfully cozy under my chin.
