This is worsted weight Bamboo Bloom Handpaints. I have never seen it before or heard of it but trust me, it is delicious. I mixed this with natural Lady Godiva by Handmaiden Yarns which is some of the softest yarn I have ever used. I did this because I was not sure I had enough for a long, wrap around cowl. I was basing this cowl on a Noro one that I made several years ago. I really love that cowl. This one does not have the stretchability that the Noro one does and only wraps around twice instead of the Noro 3 times. Oh well. I cast on 220 st using 6mm needles and did 6 rows of garter followed by stocking stitch for 8 rows and then 4 rows of garter, etc. until I was ready to bind off and then 8 rows of garter. Nothing exciting. Plain and basic which describes me to a T. I use to try all types of patterns but I am finding that I come back to the basics more and more.
It is a glorious sunny day here and I am off for the weekend. Look out knitting, here I come.
