I Want It Now Shawl

Tuesday 10 July 2012 4:31:56 am

I was using 8/60NM silk 4ply wt beige for my shawl.
I love it! This yarn looks beautiful, blocks just great! The shawl keeps shape really good. Lays beautifully on shoulders.
It was a little hard to see the beauty of this yarn in the very beginning of this project as it was all curled on the needles. After I got more rows on the needles and it gave a little weight it become much better.
I'm really happy with the result!!

Also some information about this shawl on Ravelry: YuliaAV, One Shawl - Two Ways of Blocking project.

Made this with the Mistral DK in the Malva colourway for my BFF Nancy and it's just gorgeous! It's our 50th B-days coming up and I have always promised to make her something wearable. (Shawls don't seem to count for some reason!)

More pictures and details are on my project page!

I just completed this lovely shawl, Sugar Plum Fairy by Andrea Jurgrau, with your wonderful CashSilk yarn. I had never knit with yarn this fine before and I must say, it was a pleasure. There were no irregularities of any kind in the yarn. The resulting shawl is wonderfully soft and airy. Thank you and I will be knitting with more of your yarns in the future.

Fingering weight Braid Cashmere/merino "Duvet" Black

Tuesday 19 June 2012 4:47:03 pm

This is almost as nice and squishy soft as it's cousin "Piuma"! Not really a fingering weight though but more of a DK weight after a wash!

My swatch notes are here:

The yarn can be found here:

Black is so hard to photograph so I took a picture with it's Piuma cousin in the baby blues and lilacs.

Cashmere braid "Piuma" Lilac

Friday 08 June 2012 7:01:30 pm

OMG! If you don't have any of this yet, what in the world are you waiting for?? LOL!

Seriously a nice yarn but not really a DK! Aran weight is more like it because of the structure but super light and squishy soft

My swatch notes are here: Please check them out!

Where can you find it on the CM site? Here

Not so Autumn Cloud

I knit this pullover with 2 strands of 100% cashmere 2/45 NM and 1 strand of kidsilk mohair just of the blendable colour. I used 4 mm addi needles and you can see more images in my project page in Ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/projects/maica/. I found the pattern in Ravelry also and the author is Nettekke. It is a perfect and fitted pattern. Probably I will repeat the pattern with just cashmere, because my kidsilk lost a little hair and it is impossible tu use it with black wool pants. In any case the work deserves the time spent

The blue dress is made with the heavy DK ramie/silk and is just as pretty
