My friend, Dawn, shared a whole bag of yarn with me. Included were two skeins of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in a beautiful shade of blue. It is a cashmere blend that is SOOO soft! I petted it for a while before I decided what I wanted to make.
So far, I've made one fingerless mitten from this pattern Honeycomb Wrist Warmers. It knit up very quickly and is so pretty! I just love the way the honeycomb part looks in this yarn. The second skein may become a matching scarflet. The honeycomb pattern is made by using a slip stitch. That means you slip the stitch from one needle to the other without actually knitting it. i.e. THESE WORK UP FAST BECAUSE YOU'RE ONLY KNITTING HALF THE STITCHES! I feel like I'm cheating, but I love it!!
I wrote this post months ago. The pair is now complete! I haven't started the scarflet yet, but it hasn't been forgotten. I can't decide what to do with these. I like them alot......but it's not like I need them.....but I like them alot.....
