On my needles tonight is a heartfelt project for my sister who lives in Calgary. Brrrr!!!
Kathi expressed the wish for a headband to keep her ears warm on winter walks through Fish Creek Park. Ever eager to help, I checked out my stash before she could change her mind. A quick rummage through a few bins brought to light an expertly hand-dyed skein from Entre Soeurs & Laine https://entresoeursetlaine.ca (purchased at KnitCity Vancouver 2022).
The colourway, Coulis de Frambriose, is a rich complex mix of colours ranging from vibrant magentas to burnt roses. The dyer has worked colours which meld seamlessly into one another. This is one of those colourways you wish you could eat and that keeps the eye titillated as you knit.
The skein is 70% Merino : 20% Cashmere : 10% nylon. As I knit this blend is proving to be lovely, soft and cozy. The fabric is soft, drapey and incredibly lustrous.
Stay tuned….for the finished product. Cheers, Kim
