Zanziba and Fandango Arrived
I ordered some Colinette yarn while I was at Stitches Midwest. I had seen the sweater knitted up at TKGA and kept obsessing about it. Fandango is the multicolor cotton--it's a little fuzzy. Zanziba is wool and viscose--it's the bluish stripes you see in between. I'm using 10-1/2 needles which is interesting--I usually have to go down a needle size or two because I'm a loose knitter but I get gauge on the recommended needles with this yarn (I'm making a different sweater with the throw kit that Colinette sells). This is full and satisfying because it knits up fast. I did the gauge swatch and started knitting last night. No, of course I haven't finished anything in the meantime.
