New Things
Saturday, August 20, 2005

I got the new KnitPicks catalog today. They have a bunch of new yarns that look absolutely awesome, including some cashmere/alpaca blends. They also twelve new colors of Wool of the Andes, which is great for felting. I think I'm going to have to run through some of my most bountiful stash before I buy any more yarn, although I might order a complete set of color cards. Those always come in handy when I'm planning a new project.

Right now I'm knitting a grey shawl for my mom. I'm using Lion Brand Homespun in "Slate", which is cheap and fluffy soft. I got the pattern from their website.

Hi there,

First off, I love your blog! I've read you for a while now - just curious - how do you find Knitpicks Wool of the Andes for just regular projects (not felted) - and how does it compare to Cascade 220? I cant wait to see your shawl in homespun. I did a throw for a friend in homespun - it was snuggly soft (and warm!)

Keep up the great writing!

I haven't used Wool of the Andes to make anything other than felted stuff, so I can't really tell you. I don't think it feels any itchier than any of the other wools I've used.
