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.
