I use the Knittery 4ply Merino Cashmere in Orchid & they were knitted with 3mm bamboo dpns - this yarn is slightly thicker than the 4ply merino & therefore I had to use bigger needles. The yarn is absolutely gorgeous - soft & so comfortable on the feet & they fitted me perfectly. I really like this yarn & will definitely use it again.
The 2nd FO .....
..... the Elbac scarf is also off the needles - it is also gorgeous & I love the pattern - it's definitely the best pattern that I have used for a scarf. However, the width of the scarf had turned out to be smaller than expected - 10cm only - this is because the yarn (Rowan Calmer) that I used is quite stretchy & my tension is tighter when I was knitting the cables - anyway, the scarf still turned out nice & I really love it but will have to give it away next month so I can still admire it for a while!
It has been a productive weekend for me as the weather was wet & wild making it a perfect knitting weather weekend - just sitting by the TV, watching dramas, sipping Chai tea, nibbling on Tim Tams & of course, KNITTING !!!!
