I knit up a some of Pat Fly’s (Fly Designs) hand painted Cashmara Lace Weight last week.
80% Superwash Merino 10% Cashmere 10% Nylon; 590 yds/4 oz. Machine wash and dry.
Here are some samples:
Paas contains very pastel colours of the rainbow. A subtly beautiful yarn. You know I normally photograph on a white background but I couldn’t capture these colours without either their fading or my white background turning dishwater grey!
No doubt there is a way to photograph gentle pastels on white, but I caved and trotted out my black background cloth!
The Watermelon theme was a great one to knit for 2011 as the base colour of watermelon in this tone is Pantone’s colour of the year – Honeysuckle.
This is a delightful yarn to knit – flows through the sock knitter like butter. And, you know knots are inevitable – they will show up somewhere sooner or later – but in 2 kilos I didn’t hit a single one!
