You may remember the Confetti Socks which I finished back in August. Eleanor bought me the yarn that I used from Ducky Darlings and it was a dream to knit with. I follow Ducky Darlings on Instagram, they've been doing a weekly giveaway during lockdown and I was so lucky to win the last one.
I received a beautiful skein of yarn in the Cascade colourway, a mixture of greens, yellows and blues.
It's on a superwash merino velvet cotton base, 85/15. I presume this is 85% superwash merino and 15% cotton, and it's beautifully soft. There's 400m to 100g so it's quite a plump yarn. I think it would make a beautiful hat, or perhaps a pair of mitts.
In the past I've purchased minis from Ducky Darlings which have been added to my scrappy blanket and I've been very happy with all the yarn I've had from them. Why not have a look at their online shop, though it could be quite tempting with all the loveliness on offer.
Well done on your win. It's a lovely colour and it'll be nice to see what you make with it.ReplyDelete
Isn't it amazing how the yarn makes such a difference to work. Nice yarn makes all the difference.ReplyDelete
Book is lovely and have made one of the wash cloths and am making another. will post about it later.
Any yarn with VELVET in the name has got to be squishy and lovely. Wouldn't a hat just feel wonderful.ReplyDelete
