Santorini


Santorini from Classic Elite should be in the store next week. I am so excited about this yarn. The colours are amazing and the designers came up with awesome patterns.

Santorini's colorways sing along the matte and shiny textures inherent in the yarn, adding vibrant color to warm-weather garments, wraps and scarves. 
58% viscose
42% cotton

5 stitches to the inch on 4.5mm needles

114m in a 50gram ball.










The patterns will be available in the book Along The Shore. If you purchase the book, there is a scratch code in it so that you can download the patterns to your Ravelry library. You can also purchase the individual patterns on Ravelry.

Ley Lines #1 is at the point where I am supposed to cast off. I've pinned it onto my friend so that you could see the size.
I am working with 3 - 100gram skeins of Malabrigo Sock. I weighed what I have left at this point. 140grams. I haven't sat down to figure out the numbers exactly but I have a feeling that you will be able to get the shawl out of approximately 800m of yarn. You won't be able to increase the size though. If you like a big shawl then I suggest getting more yarn. Since I have lots of yarn and I want a really big shawl, I'm continuing on with my increase rows for a bit.

Love the Santorini yarns. Beautiful shades.

Casting off my Ley Lines. I too did extra rows trying to judge how much farther I could go. Hope I don't run out!
