I can't believe it... but is that the sun peeking through the clouds ? Do you think we might have a sunny Saturday? I bought this yarn in a discount bin at a hardware store yesterday.
It's Patons Rumor 84% Acrylic, 15% Alpaca, 1% Polyester, colourway 69040 Spanish Heather,
I really want to knit with, it just to see what it would be like? I'm so glad I only bought one skein! I love the softness & the colorway, but I’m having a problem with shedding, of what I assume is the alpaca fiber, the loose fibers is just too much ! I used Cari's favourite hat pattern but it calls for a worsted weight and size 6mm needles. This on is a Super Bulky weight so I went down to a size 5mm needle and I think that might have been a mistake!
The fit isn't all that great, and it slips off the head . I might rip it out and look for a one skein project to make out of it, Kelli has suggested that I make another Calorimetry ? although I kinda getting tired of that one. Anyway I'm supposed to be finished with all this winter knitting stuff!!! lol.
Yes it's hard to be inspired to knit spring and summer things when there's dirty piles of snow everywhere you look, and the temperature is always below freezing.
Anyway, you all have a great weekend. :)
