Happy Lunar New Year!
Glad that I got some new Italian yarn with my red-pocket money. (hm..I shouldn't opened the envelop until the 15th of the calendar) And this time I got something lustrous.
This yarn is made of 67% of extra fine merino wool and 33% of nylon. At first I thought it contains some silk as it is quite silky to touch. I was wrong. (it does look silky, doesn't it?)
Anyway, I first bought two balls of Sublime merino dk. The yarn is such an woolly appeal and I was so eager to make something great out of it. Must not have a wooly head while I am designing the pattern. The color is also wonderful. I believe the white string around the merino is the nylon part. It's almost a sin to take your eyes away from it. Innovative appearance.
I was about to make something for this Valentine's. Well, it's probably good for next year. My fault: slow progress.
I knitted with US#6 needles. Well, so far so good. Easy to handle, soft to touch. So far no complaint about it except it's high cost. Yet, I would say: it is worth the price. Will blog about the scarflet soon.
