I’m using the Curls preorder
to introduce the patterns and yarns from the book. I’ll be featuring a new pair each day. Most of the yarn companies have donated lovely prizes, so come back every day to see what’s new!
I’ve already professed my love for the two extremes of the cable spectrum. The last project satisfied my need for the big meaty cables, this one takes care of my undying fondness for teeny tiny cables. Just to make things even more interesting, there’s a bit of dropped stitch action going on, too. The result is a dense, substantial, deeply textured fabric with marvelous body. You’ll know you have this on, and you’ll love snuggling up in it.
Of course it’s hard not to love being snuggled in swaths of 55% cashmere and 45% merino yarn dyed by the lovely folks at The Plucky Knitter. My fondness for designing in their yarns is well established. I am pretty hopelessly smitten with all they do. But most of my projects with them have been in lighter yarns. This was one of the few times I’ve played with their thicker lines, and I’m impressed as always. It’s substantial without being heavy, it feels delightful while you’re knitting, and it holds up beautifully over time. I know you’ll love it!
