Puppy Dog Tails Superwash Merino from Southern Cross Fibre,
4 oz., 264 yds of sportweight
I got lucky on a destash and it turned out to be perfect for my Snobby Holiday Swap partner.
It's a lovely, soft superwash merino. I tried to divide evenly...um...but I had a few issues, so I just went with the flow and spun it up.
I didn't get a skeined shot as it was a few days before Christmas, I had a houseful of people and had to start immediately to finish for the deadline....
My goal was sock weight....got more of a sportweight and sadly not enough for the size needed for my swap partner....What you see here is only 1 of 2 yarn cakes.
So I went with plan B....
Here are the n-ply leftovers...they turned out to be plan C....
B is for Lacey Baktus
Turned out pretty well I think! I knit the smaller yarn cake (by a few grams) first, then tied on the 2nd yarn cake and started the decreases. Used a US 7 needle with no mods.
Baktus on a Bush! It's a really easy pattern and works great for handspun too.
Oh...the plan C....it turned out to be an Owl Puff
Size US 7 needles, no mods. Most of these are knit up with 2 or more colors. I thought some stripey yarn worked even better. My swap partner likes owls.
Are you my Daddy??
