I’ve got a project on the needles, people!
Christmas time is drawing nearer and this is usually the time when my knitting alarms go off. So I have decided to start off with Urchin by Ysolda.
Yarn: Plymouth Yarn, Baby Alpaca Grande
Made in Peru!
Color: Camel-ish – there isn’t a color on the label, just #600. :: Boring, Peru, I expected more from you::
Needles: US 10 1/2, bamboo circular – because I only knit on circulars. Call me weird, but the long needles hurt my wrists and get in my way.
Pattern: The short rows themselves are not a new experience, but since I’m having trouble visualizing how the hat will knit up, I feel like it’s a big guessing game! What will it look like next? Am I doing this right?… I /think/ so… hehe
Quite possibly the softest yarn I’ve ever used. SO fluffy, but not splitty.
More on my progress later. This is knitting up really fast, so I’m going to attempt to do it all today. Am I nuts? Perhaps. :)
