Did you know that Wollmeise has a new yarn?
It’s called “Blend” and it is a 70% Merino, 20% Cashmere, and 10% Nylon (Polyamide) blend. Each 150-gram skein is 546 yards of pure pleasure. Here are the skeins those labels came off:
And here is the start of what I am doing with them:
This pattern is “At Dawn” by Joji Locatelli. I’m actually more than halfway done with it:
The pattern calls for fingering weight yarn and Wollmeise Blend is listed in Ravelry as sportweight. I would call it a light sportweight, though, like halfway between fingering and sport. I did do a gauge swatch for the piece, starting with a 3.25mm needle, what I usually use for one of these garter stitch wraps. The fabric I got was a little on the firm side, so I went up to a 3.5mm (U.S. size 4) needle and am happy with the results.
I purchased my Wollmeise Blend yarn directly from the Wollmeise online store, by the way.
It’s possible that I am a little obsessed with garter stitch wraps right now.
Loki thinks there is nothing nicer than a nap while Momma knits.
In other news, here is a pumpkin hat my new knitter just made for a friend’s baby:
She completed this in under a week. I am so proud of her!
