4/13nm Cashmere DK Cowl

This yarn is just yummy! It knits up more like a fingering weight and isn't very soft till it's been washed a few times but the after effect is beautiful and oh so soft!

Here you'll find more details of the cowl. (Pattern coming soon )

For more yarny details, please check out the post below and follow the link.

Swatching again!

This one is a little "meh" off the cone but softens very nicely after a few washes!

Details are on the link below.

The photo shows 2 swatches. The top one is prewashed yarn knit up and washed again and the second, lower swatch, is knit straight off the cone. I might take the time to prewash this one as it's much nicer to knit with and fewer issues with skewed stitches. All in all, it's a lovely yarn

ETA: I just machine washed these 2 swatches, just to see how the swatches would hold up to that abuse, with a load of jackets and hoodies and they came out SOOOOO SOFT! Piuma soft!

I finish this cardigan with this 3/15 yarn. I knit it directly from the cone and after washing it really blooms a lot . You can see more details and more photos in

This was wonderful yarn for weaving.

4/12 viscose/silk DK (Pink mix)

Samstag, 28. September 2013 17:04:40

This is a very pretty yarn and, again, very smooth to knit. The viscose bits really ad some nice drape and colour to this yarn.

More notes and pictures on my swatch page.

Please do check out my swatch page as this one does bias in but it's pretty enough to try to work around that with textured or lace stitches
I'll knit up a lace swatch and post pictures on my page... I'll probably update this photo as well.

4/24nm noil silk 4ply (rich bottle)

Samstag, 28. September 2013 16:57:18

I got a sample of this noil silk because it looks so smooth in the photo's and, irl, it is smooth. (Quite contrary to other noils that I have tried.) It's very nice to knit and has no nubby texture to it.

More notes on my swatch page

The colour in my photo of my swatch is not true. It's a really rich deep green... no blue.

3/35 Silk/cotton ecru off white

Dienstag, 13. August 2013 19:00:57 In this page you can see some notes. This cardigan was made with a Colourmart silk cotton mix 3/35 and some Phildar viscosa/silk bougth more than twenty years ago and hide in my stash. I am very happy with this cardigan, ideal for some places with air conditioning but not too warm. The silk cotton yarn is perfect for my city

2/36 50/50 cashmere/silk

Dienstag, 13. August 2013 18:53:55

I made this pullover with 2/36 cashmere/silk doubled. I used only 84 grams of yarn with 3.25 needles and it is perfect for summer nigths. You can see more photos in my project page

Tie-Back Tank in Cotton 2/18nm Heavy lace weight held double

Donnerstag, 08. August 2013 06:06:59

Light summer top with pretty allover lace on the back and plain front.
I held the yarn double, with 3.5mm needles. The pattern called for DK and 4mm, so this is lighter and I think this yarn is great for it, giving a soft texture to the plain side.
And Tart is such a cheery colour - I've never worn orange before in my life, but I really love this one!

Marvelous halo. I used three diferent needles : 3.25, 3.75 and 4 mm. Maybe I prefer the second one. No bias at all

I used the yarn doubled with 3.25 mm needles. Very sweet and not too warm. Ideal for spring or summer nigths. No bias and definitely one of the bet CM yarns
