I travelled a lot on our holiday - I needed a knitting job, what is well transportable, and simple enough to knit also in darkness. I didn’t hesitated too much, this yarn is waiting for me already for a long time, and I also got the idea, what I want to make with it.
The yarn is hand spun by me from two very different material: silk and merino. I dyed both of them and spun the merino thicker, the silk thinner and rustic. The two different color complemet each other perfectly. The yarn I got is rustic, shiny and soft.
This yarn is too busy for too much pattern, thats why the shawl I knit from this will be simple - but intricate. More about the design next week!
