You’ve seen the finished Argosy pre-blocking, but now here it is in all it’s blocked cashmere-y, silky glory.
It was really fun to knit.
Pattern: Argosy from Knitty
Yarn: Sublime cashmere merino silk DK in colour 07 smoke blue – 2 balls
Needles: 3.75mm bamboo
No mods to the pattern. I’ll find my tape measure later and add the finished dimensions.
I hope my Nan likes it.
I have made a couple of additions to the stash lately.
The pink mohair and the blue/grey/cream pure wool were gifts from Mum from Australia. Not sure what I will do with them yet. The blue stuff is 14 sts on 6.5mm needles, and there is 72m per ball. It’s a single ply so I wonder if it would felt. Could be a bag perhaps?
I decided I needed an extra ball of RYC wool/silk. I have one ball already but the yardage isn’t great so I bought this second ball to make sure I could get a hat done. It’s really gorgeous and I want to knit something with it. They had the purple on the shelf which is a fab colour too.
I also finally caved in (on a different day) and bought 2 balls of kidsilk haze. I fondle this every time I go in to a shop that stocks it. I dithered for about 20 minutes about what colour to buy, as my walking distance LYS only has half the colour range. The pale pink and the pinky-purple (dewberry?) were tempting, but I decided this blue-green would tone in with the browns and blues I often wear, as well as a teal which I intend to make a cardi or jumper in at some point.
Not sure yet if this will be a Wisp from Knitty, something from VLT which my library has on order for me, or if I will make a pattern up for it.
