I recently was sent a lovely little gift bag of Cleckheaton yarn:
This a special new yarn, Australian Superfine Merino by Cleckheaton. This yarn is made in Australia from 100% Australian superfine merino sheep.
Inside the bag was a cute hat kit and the yarn to knit it:
The yarn is, as advertised, incredibly soft.
I did a quick gauge swatch, and it is not only a dream to knit, it has wonderful stitch definition as well. It is an 8-ply yarn and is DK weight. The yarn is put up in 65-gram skeins with 130 meters per skein, and it comes in a very nice range of colors, which can be seen on the Cleckheaton website here. You can purchase the yarn online from that site for $10.37 (I assume these are Australian dollars, so at current conversion rates that’s $8.64 U.S. dollars), and you can also download the cute beanie pattern, free. That would make a great, quick holiday gift, doncha think?
Current Work in Progress
I am knitting along on my Woodfords Cardigan. I don’t have a recent WIP photo for you, but here is one from the other day:
I am now at the point of joining the front to back at the bottom of the armhole, so I’ve done a bit more since that photo was taken. I am also working on a number of small projects, so I’m not being 100% faithful to this project.
Loki is helping, as usual.
