Feeling Like a Traitor
Beautiful, Soft Synthetic Blend
Falling in love with a synthetic blend yarn seems like traitorous behavior to me.
My current project is using a yarn called Seasons by Ella Rae.
It’s a bulky yarn that is very soft and has a braided-like ply to it that makes it very durable and easy to knit with. The colors are really quite fine and I’m loving mixing some of the more ombre-like colors with the brighter colorways.
I highly recommend knitting this on a bigger needle than the recommended US 8 (5 mm)…I’m using a US 10.75 (7 mm) needle and with the brioche rib, it’s coming out very soft and squishy.
I will never give up my fine yarns…but I am loving this project.
I will also probably end up writing up this project as a design…it’ll be a two-fer design…one for the adult size afghan and one for a baby-size afghan…both will be completely reversible (with no “wrong side”).
Working diligently to try and not be distracted by a new project, I am focusing all my efforts on the Niece Blanket.
I’ve completed about 54 inches so far and have about 6 more inches to go before I bind off. Hope my niece loves it as much as I do.
