Before Christmas I saw the most beautiful yarns by James C Brett, called Marble Chunky and I fell in love with them. The search for wooden circular needles began and now I’ve found Knit Pro Basix and got some in 6mm size, I treated myself to a ball of Marble Chunky in colour MC 6.
Personally I find actual wool itchy, however soft/fine etc people tell me it is, it still feels itchy to me when I’m wearing it. The sad thing is until now I hadn’t found any pure acrylic yarn in such nice colours as are available in wool. There are sooo many beautiful colour ways in this yarn that if I get on ok with it, I’ll be collecting lots more of them. Here’s a better picture of the colours in the ball I bought.
What are you making?
Well I really liked the Delores Cowl found on the Sixoneseven blog, so I’m having a go at modifying the number of stitches to see if I can make it in the James Brett Yarn.
