This week has been a bit hectic so I’ve only gotten a small bit of knitting done, but the knitting has been anything but frantic. It’s been quite perfect, actually.
|Malabrigo Yarn Dos, colorway Zinc|
These are my modified version of Hunter Hammersen’s Fracas Cuffs and my 2nd Malabrigo March FO. The yarn was positively dreamy to knit.
That, my friends, is what 2 plies of springy, soft, sport-weight heaven looks like. Revel in its glory, please.
The only thing fracas-like about these cuffs is how badly they’ve got me jonesin’ to knit with more Dos. See, I get like this. I love a yarn, then need to knit everything I can think of with that yarn, and I’m pretty happy that way. Then sometimes a new yarn catches my eye and I destash some (remember, $3 off if you’re a blog reader!) in order to justify frantically hoarding new yarn. But in this case, I’m at a loss because Dos is not readily available, it was a test yarn that may or may not ever really be produced, and I have a third of my skein left over and I MUST KNIT WITH MORE DOS. *ahem* So I had to beg and borrow, wheel and deal but finally one lovely soul is willing to trade her skein (of a different color, unfortunately) for some other yarn I had (see, who cares anymore?) and I suppose that will have to tide me over. Any good ideas for a cute cowl or scarf that uses 2 colorways of sport-weight yarn (~200 yards total)?
