Big Merino Candy

October 12, 2010

Big Merino from Fleece Artist, which lately has proven irresistible.  Huge gauge, easy and quick to knit up, lovely colours, and a low price.  How could I leave without just one or two (or four from the last trip to my LYS to get needles, I didn’t find the needles, but I found the candy!). 

So far I’ve found this hat pattern from Knitty to try out, with plans of using the greens for a big thick chunky scarf.  I’m hoping the blue and pink turn into Christmas presents, that is if I can bear to part with them.

  1. Totally blowing my own horn, but may I suggest my Mistaken Shawl? It is AWESOME. I snugged under it nursing Eleni, and I’m kind of glad that it’s gotten cool enough to wear it again. Super quick, uses four skeins. I wear it wrapped & tied behind my back. It’s free on Rav or my website.
    OTOH, I have another four skeins in my stash that are destined to become a lightly fulled short sleeved sweater… That yarn is just irresistible. Especially if you’ve been knitting socks or lace just previously.

    Mmmmm. They look so soft and fluffy!
