An Enchanting Yarn Gift

An Enchanting Yarn Gift

I had some beautiful yarn that was given to me by a friend that I have looked at periodically and wondered what to make with it. She gave it to be because when she saw it she knew I would love it. I mean…it’s pink.  🙂 I was looking for a project and after considering several ideas I decided on a scarf. I had 400 grams, but feared it was not enough for a sweater since it is pretty thick yarn and I knew it would only knit on the bulky machine. It is 60% baby suri and 40% merino by Blue Sky Alpacas. Did I say this was luscious yarn? It is a silky, itch-free combination of baby suri alpaca and the softest merino wool. It is made in Peru and I love that it has found me. Since a scarf was in order, I needed a pattern and as I perused one of my favorite blogs that I follow, cckittenknits, I saw this pattern and thought I’d try it. I knit it on tension 5 and the cables knit up quickly. It is half on the ribber so that it lays flat off the machine. I knit 281 rows and it is 60” X 5”. It is incredibly warm, so it is definitely a winter wear – although it is blizzarding in April at my Colorado home right now! 🙂 I have another 200 grams of it and I think it will make a lovely gift for someone. This is the link to the pattern. https://cckittenknits.wordpress.com/2014/12/03/cabled-scarf-made-on-the-brother-bulky/
Thank you, Melanie, for this enchanting yarn gift. ❤
