Did Santa bring you any yarn this year? ;)
I had decided last week that Santa really wanted me to have some Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light in the lovely Steel Cut Oats (4214), Prune Mix (4284) and Blueberry Mix (4288) shades.
And now I’m turning it into snowflakes! :)
HO HO HO
I dare say Santa chose well for you :)
I’ve ordered myself a gift bag of red yarn, but am waiting for it to arrive. And with the current postal problems, who knows when I might get it! I suppose that’s part of the surprise too.
Santa did well by you, I can tell!
I got yarn too, and I’m pretty sure Santa consulted my Ravelry queue to figure out the best things to get me. Very thoughtful :D
Hahaha, yes, Santa is cunning that way! Hmmm, is there a way to share your Ravelry queue with people who aren’t on Ravelry? You know, to help Santa out next year… ;)
I love this yarn and have a whole bunch of it. But I’ve only used one skein as a border on things. Loverly snowflakes…
It’s my first time working with it and I have to say I’m adoring it. The colours are goooorgeous, and the yarn is so soft and has the perfect tension… And I have a sneaking suspicion it will block beautifully ;))
I must admit that I’m really keen on this yarn (I must not buy any just now! Stash is exploding as is). What size needles are you using? It looks like the yarn/needle combo is making this a very wearable weight.
The pattern looks wonderful!
Thank you! I’m using 2.5mm, and they seem to be working perfectly for stranded knitting with this yarn weight. I did my ribbing on 2mm, in a single colour, and that feels lovely too.
Ooh, that’s gorgeous. No colour choice problems there, then, :)
Hehe, well remembered ;)
There’s something very charming about this color combination. Are those mittens?
Yes! I’ll write more about the pattern later, but you can find it here: http://kathrynivy.com/patterns/premium/wintry_mix_mitts/
Sooo pretty! Love those colors together, and I’m glad you had a Merry Christmas!
Is it Prune Mix on top? Cos that looks like a musthave colour! And so does Blueberry Mix, hmmm… I’ll be on the look-out for Belated Santa ;)
It is! I adore all three of them, there is such variety within each of the shades, it’s pure joy.
