The yarn will make its debut on Friday 18th March at The Knitting Goddess stall at Edinburgh AND in BritYarn's shop!
I had a massive amount of fun swatching with this new yarn, it has lots of character and I just wanted to keep on knitting. The high twist not only gives the yarn additional strength but also allows the stitches to stand out beautifully against the slight halo of the Wensleydale.
It is not the softest of yarns to squish (it has a good sturdiness to it which I love). I happily wore my blocked swatch next to my skin. I had to smile when Joy told me she gets Bobbie to 'itch test' new yarns. I do the same with Mr BritYarn! Mr BritYarn is pretty sensitive to things which might itch / tickle. I am pleased to report he wore the swatch for several hours and I had to remind if I could have it back..... a big thumbs up.
The Knitting Goddess Wensleydale Shetland yarn is perfect for so many different projects.... not just socks and shawls but I am also thinking lightweight but warm garments ready for Spring!
