I just can’t get over HOW SOFT THIS YARN IS! I’ve been looking forward to our very first shipment of our brand new yarn, Billow, since the day we decided to add it to our lineup for 2013. I love the soft, luscious color palette, the wonderfully tactile thick-and-thin strand and… did I mention the color palette?!
I immediately gravitated toward the sultry grey Ash hanks and grabbed five skeins so that I could work on a sweater during my month-long exile to the land of Jury Duty. I picked out 81-26 a Pullover in Salsa sweater pattern from Drops Design on Ravelry, found my size 9 needles and set to work the very next morning.
I finished this sweater in a quick two days of knitting on the light
rail, knitting in the evening and knitting during those little blips of
down time that seemed to fill the days. It only took four hanks of
Billow to finish and I absolutely love how it turned out. I’ve already
worn it out and about a handful of times and it’s definitely kept me
I can’t wait to start another project. Maybe a new pillow in that eye catching Lichen? Or a squishy cowl in Turmeric? Oh the choices! You can see Billow if you follow this link here: http://www.knitpicks.com/cfyarns/yarn_display.cfm?ID=5420244.
