No blogging for a while because I have been plugging away at Saffron Cables. I'm in the home stretch now.
But I've been cheating again... I fell in love with this:
I couldn't help but do a little yarn research and bought a couple skeins and did a couple of swatches!
The left swatch is karabella aurora 8. I think this is similar to the berroco merino that is called for. The stitches are clear, the gauge is correct, but I am worried about how dense the little sweater will be. The second is rowan kid classic. The gauge is a little bit off, the stitches are not as distinct, but it is so light and fluffy and fuzzy. And I love the color. Maybe I should try it again on a smaller needle? I'm not sure which I prefer.
