I’m beginning to think this yarn is a bit of a show off…
Probably about 1/3 through the knitting for this now. I was already loving the darks. But as I could see the yarn was graying, I couldn’t wait to get to the lighter shades too.
Kind of reminds me of a charcoal drawing. Bearing down on the charcoal to get those rich, dark, velvety darks and then using your eraser to eat away at what you’ve lain down, only to find that the history of the mark still remains. Faint, yet still alive.
But this yarn isn’t just practicing the value scales. Can’t be because the shifts are simply flawless.
The yarn does, however, have one bite. The micron count must be astronomical. If you can see the hairs that are on that strand of yarn there, you will be able to tell why.
Once the knitting is completed, it’ll be taking a nice vinegar bath.
What a pretty yarn.
