I’ve had a lot of questions about the new project I shared in an earlier post. I wasn’t thinking clearly, or else I would have included the details of course! Both yarns are from Manos del Uruguay, and they’re my newest review project.
The solid is Fino in the color Peacock Plume, and it’s an extrafine merino/silk blend. I’ve used it once before and it’s heavenly. It’s paired with Cabrito, a laceweight kid mohair blend, in the color Locura Fluo. Now imagine merino, silk, and mohair all in one project, and you know why I’m obsessed with this project right now!
The Cabrito is 230 yards and Fino is 490, but I really wanted to knit them together for maximum coziness. I decided the two held together could be close to a DK, so I chose a simple shawl pattern called Orbit. I’ve made one before and wear it all the time, so I knew it was a good pattern choice. I’ve been tired in the evenings so I’m not getting a ton of knitting done but here’s where I am so far.
This one’s not going to linger on my needles, I can tell already!
I have a sweater in the same color of Fino hibernating 1/3 done. It is lovely to work with. I really should get it out again.
A sweater in Fino would be heavenly!! Am I remembering right that you already have a couple of sweaters in that color? 😉
That is so awesome. I love the way it’s turning out!
They look so gorgeous together
Don’t they though? 🙂
