Love This New Yarn

The boxes are arriving thick and fast at the moment.  All full of lovely new yarn to tempt and patterns to add to the list.

The first yarn I unpacked this week is Basic Merino Flash from Katia and I’m completely in love with it.

There are 8 beautifully variegated shades in this double knit yarn.

Each 50g ball contains 120 metres/131 yards and its a wool blend.  52% wool, 48% acrylic.  Machine washable and according to the label it can go in the tumble dryer too.

I’m presently knitting one of the designs from Katia book 44, which is a special issue for beginners and I’ve deliberately chosen to work with a colour I wouldn’t usually choose straight away (I’m a blue girl).

I’m impressed though, I think it’s going to make a lovely little garment that may even end up in the grandma box.

For those of you wondering, it’s knit sideways from sleeve to sleeve.

Happy Knitting!
