The yarn I use is Handmaiden Lady Godiva in the colourway Sangria (50% wool, 50% silk), and I must admit it is fast becoming my favourite yarn I have ever touched or worked with. SO SOFT! I only have a single skein and do not feel like splurging on another (it is fairly costly, unfortunately) to make the shawl bigger, so shawlette it is. But I suspect I will buy more skeins (probably in other colours) in the future for other luxury projects.
|Skein being wound into a ball to knit from.|
PS: I also wound the huge Kauni skein into five balls, numbered for sequence to make seamless transitions. It is ca 1900m of yarn. That means winding almost 2km of yarn into balls. A good nights job!
|Look at the size of that skein!|
|The yarn is single ply and so thin, so thin. The blue parts kept|
breaking as I wound the balls, which was part of the reason for
making multiple balls of it. I am not sure what to make out of
something this rainbow-looking... suggestions welcome!
