This week's offerings will be 'Drift' and 'Flow'.
Flow is a truly luscious 50% silk/50% merino lace weight yarn. It knits into stunning, drapey lace patterns and beautiful, smooth stockinette with the greatest of ease, and has a soft, but not overwhelming, lustre. It is one of my favourite yarn lines!
With 450m per 50g skein, and 24-32 stitches (32-42 rows) per 10cm on 1.75-3.5 mm needles, this is a seriously versatile luxury.
I'd love to knit a Whisper cardigan (Ravelry link) in this stuff, if I ever manage to keep any for myself. Yum!!
Drift is an awesome kid mohair/nylon laceweight with a close resemblance to a certain famous yarn from a top UK supplier (except without the silk!).
It comes in 50g/425m skeins
And knits up on 3 to 5 mm needles at a gauge of 18-25 stitches and 23-33 rows per 10 cm.
...just as you'd expect, this is perfect for lacey little shawls and stoles, or can be held double to create a thicker fabric. Enjoy!
