Every Way Wrap
When I was in Philly last month, I bought 8 skeins of Berroco Lustra, a peruvian wool, tencel single ply worsted yarn. I originally bought it with some silver and black yarn and was going to use these two as accents (Tony's car's colors) but was kind of vague as to what I wanted to make with it. I then got my Fall 2009 Interweave Knits and absolutely fell in love with the Every Way Wrap
So yesterday, I hunted down my size 9 circs and cast on. the color of the yarn is gorgeous. More like the second picture than the first. I like the sheen that the Tencel gives the yarn. I've always liked single ply yarns for whatever reason. My only complaint with the yarn is it does pill a little as it is being knit and inside the ball two strands get stuck together and needs to be untangled. Hopefully there won't be a lot of pilling in the finished wrap.
I really wish you could reach into the screen and FEEL it. it has wonderful hand feel!
