The February Dream Club has arrived.
When I felt this squishy, cozy yarn, I knew I wanted to make slippers from it! But, I also wanted them to last for a little bit. So, I made them almost entirely out of Eye of Partridge stitch, which is normally used just for the heel flap on top-down socks. The color reminded me of the bright plumage of pheasants, so the Pleasant Pheasant slippers were born!What is this squishy yarn? Dream in Color Classy with Cashmere
These are toe-up slippers that are knit in the round until the heel shaping. The heel is worked back-and-forth with a little shaping, then bound off with a fun, three- needle bind off you may not have tried before - the zig-zag bind off.
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.The yarn and pattern are $45.50.
There was more Classy with Cashmere in the box.
I'm going to hit Publish and start on tomorrow's post. There is another new sample and more yarn to write about.
