I bought this yarn on E-Bay and I am loving how soft it is. It is a German blend, Dafne(made in Italy?) : 75% wool 10% Alapaca 5% Silk 10% Acrylic
So soft. And should be warm. I plan on making short sleeves for the top and a slightly longer hemline. It seems to be working up quickly so far. Which I really like. This is one of my first ever pink knitting projects. It’s a brownish-grey sort of pink that I quite like.
Do you have any new projects started or planned for PS2?
The scarlet – which was meant to be pink – looks more orange than anything. I like it more now that it is wound – we’ll see how it looks when it is knit. I can’t wait to see if the math worked out for the stripes…you know what they say about math…5 out of 4 people have trouble with fractions.
Actually – just a few weeks ago I was talking to a co-worker and I said I was about 4/8ths complete….luckily the pause between sentences was blink of an eye short and I said or, you know….halfway. Where on earth did that fraction come from??
ETA: A few people were asking what I used to dye the yarn. I used Tintex Fabric Dye. I bought it at a Dollar Store for $1.29 a box and used a miniscule amount of each colour. I had Scarlet Red, Forest Green and Brilliant Yellow.
