Ah, there’s nothing quite like casting on for a new project. Sorry to those of you who were misled into thinking that I was casting on for the Gerda stole. Sadly I don’t have the time, patience, or talent to knit something this fine. I’m a dk girl, all the way.
In the end I decided to knit the Central Park Hoodie from Knitscene (which is getting better every issue, by the way). I hear that it’s a great pattern to knit, and it’s just my style. As is the yarn I’ve chosen to knit it in: pillar box red organic merino, or as I like to call it, heaven in a skein. I have it in 4ply and dk weight, and it’s now available on the site here.
I can highly recommend it for knitability. It’s squishy and soft, with good stitch definition. And it dyes beautifully. We’ve done lots for next week’s OOW, and I foresee it becoming a favourite.
As will this red hoodie, I suspect.
