|Isn't she pretty?|
Pattern: Lisle by Ysolda Teague
Yarn: Gella Yarns Inco Eco (worsted weight cotton)
Yardage: 5 skeins, 700 yards
Needles: Size 8
Cast on: March 9, 2013
Notes: One more sample for Green Planet Yarn. It's my first Ysolda Teague pattern, the feather and fan is so easy and pretty, and the top down design is going to make finishing super simple. The thick and thin 100% organic eco-friendly cotton yarn is lovely to work with, but it certainly reminds me why I usually prefer working with animal fibers.
A few weeks ago Katy who blogs at Knits in Class asked for help to name her new merino and bamboo yarn. The picture of undyed yarn reminded me of rice noodles, so I suggested Mifun, which means rice noodles (shhh you Chinese people can see I made a typo.). Katy picked my suggestion for her yarn, and send me a skein dyed in Lagoon colorway. The yarn indeed is soft and drapy, will be loads of fun to work with.
To continue the yarn recycling theme from last week, here is some new to me Ella Rae Lace Merino yarn. Prior to Green Planet Yarn's recent move to a new location, the staffers got to divvy up some old shop samples. I took home this wavy scarf from a yarn company. I wasn't too crazy about the scarf, but I wanted the yarn. It's taken me a few weeks to rip it, skein the yarn, wash it, and now it's ready to join my stash. It will probably become another scarf or shawl, but it will be MY scarf!
Happy Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blog, and leave me a comment!
