A New Experience

I picked up a yarn that is way out of my comfort zone at our local yarn shop winter sale. I did it because I intend to knit a cowl for a friend, and I know she’ll love it. However, for me, it is a stretch.

I decided on a brioche stitch to show off the fluffiness and unevenness of the yarn. The colors are amazing as well.

There were a few false starts. First was casting on too many stitches. The second being a size 17 needle. Now I am working on a size 13 needle and I cast on 22 stitches. It is plenty wide at that amount.

I adore it. It is killing my hands dead, but I adore it. I will have to limit my time with it, as the 2.5 hours I put in last night has me unable to knit today. But it is pretty hard to resist!

Oh, and perhaps I should mention what the yarn is! Mountain Colors Bozeman. Colorway Spring Eclipse. It is a 250 yard skein, so it is absolutely HUGE, a full 8 oz of yarn. But man is it stunning!
