Dreaming

More colours are coming from Dream in Color. The shipment is leaving Arizona at the end of the week and we should have it by the middle of next week. All these colours will be available in two different yarns - both with the blend of 70% superwash merino, 20% cashmere and 10% nylon. Both yarns come in 100gram skeins.

Classy with Cashmere
An exquisite blend of luxury fibers and a refined twist unite to make Classy with Cashmere an exceptional yarn indeed. 20% cashmere lends the yarn an irresistible softness, while 10% nylon and 70% superwash merino make Classy with Cashmere a superb choice for well-loved baby garments and special occasion accessories alike.
Jilly with Cashmere
Jilly with Cashmere is a single-ply fingering weight yarn from Dream in Color. The blend of merino wool and cashmere makes this yarn remarkably soft and the nylon adds additional strength. Dream in Color's dyeing technique results in a very artistic and unique look in each skein, with intense color variation and a shadow effect.

My knitting is back on track. Except for the fact that you need to put stitches on waste yarn. I hate doing that because it isn't fun getting them back on the needle. I leave them on a separate circular. All fine and good except that I have too many stitches and they keep falling off the ends. POINT PROTECTORS??? I don't have any. And I was at the store today to water the plants and forgot them. I'll take some pictures tomorrow when I can show the sweater on a mannequin. ASAP from tosh is a dream to knit with.

Waste yarn is sticky, but dental floss - or better yet, dental tape - works well. You can tie the two ends together to form a loop where the stitches will stay safe. I reuse the floss from project to project - great for life lines in a lace project.
