Thank you to Haley at Knitomatic for hosting a Shibui Yarn tasting this past Sunday! What a great idea. We got to knit with a whole range of yarns, just a little swatch was enough to get an idea of how it behaves. Yarns can be knit on their own or mixed with a second yarn to make interesting combinations, such as Cima + Staccato, or Heichi + Silk Cloud. My conclusion is that Silk Cloud makes everything better, but then again I am a huge sucker for mohairy goodness! The best part was I won a prize……..Ta Dah!
The kit I won includes the yarn in pink and the pattern. It’s already on my needles. My youngest fell in love with the yarn as soon as she saw it – Haley knit one up (check it out here), and says I might be able to get 2 hats of of 1 skein each – bonus hat for me!!!! Yeah!
