I’ve been saving this project for the cooler weather, but I’ve realised that with this extended summer we’re having, I’ll never get it out there!
I’m working on a knitting pattern actually, with one of my universal favourites, Scheepjes Stone Washed XL. Actually, not Stone Washed, but River Washed XL!
Scheepjes River Washed is essentially the same composition as the Stone Washed, but instead of the white core with coloured fuzz, the core has a complementary, or contrasting colour.
See in the picture above? The two yarns have a contrasting core, but the same fuzz, making them best friends. Coincidentally, these are my two favourite colourways, Yarra and Steenbras.
River Washed is available in 14 colourways, plus 8 colours with a muted mustard core.
So I mentioned in the title of this, I’m working on a knitting project! It will be a squishy knitted shawl, using 7mm needles. I’m breaking out my Prym Ergonomics*, which are probably nearly my favourite needles. If they were interchangeable I’d use them exclusively. Actually, I see that Caro’s Atelier stock them in a 2.5mm size now, so I’ll have to grab a pair for socks!
Now the important stuff; you need to get your hands on this yarn!
So there’s no excuse, really.
I’ll be back next week with some progress pics, until then!
