Ohh! French Yarn!!!!

Merinos

This arrived for me today from the lovely Becky! It’s some fabulous Anny Blatt Merinos yarn! It is, shock!, DK weight! I’m slowly moving down the needle sizes!

Here’s a close up

Thanks Becky! And if you want to see what I traded for this go here.

I’ve been thinking a bit more about the Colinette poncho. It is basically two rectangles sewn together so I’m going to have a stab at making one without a pattern. I’ve made a little model from a post-it note and will use that for working out the measurements of the poncho. I have plenty of Colinette in my stash but I actually like the sound of some of Wendy’s not-Colinette yarn subsitutions. I’m thinking that I may have enough yarn to create a blue green poncho.

Something else that’s still on my to-do list is a bucket hat. I haven’t got any further than casting on a few stitches in Black Rowan Handknit DK because I’m waiting for some new needles. When I get them they’ll get a lot of use because this is my Summer Bucket Hat stash so far!

    Ah, the lovely Merinos makes it to her new home in Wales. I expect her to pick up the language quickly, eh?
    You’ve got quite an impressive stash of summer bucket hat yarn there! Does this mean that you’ll be bucketing with me through summer? Please say “yes”!
