Project Blog Post #2: Schachenmayr Micro Color

Sponsors needed at Project Blog

This yarn is so nice, I'm glad that Lizzi discovered it and wrote about it in her blog. I followed her lead and with a little help, found the greatest color, Nassau Beach. When I'm a little less bleary-eyed, I'll take some photos of the progress.

Amazingly, one 50g skein made 59+ diamonds--that's almost half of the back of the sweater. Let's just say that a little goes a long way. I bought 10 skeins for this sweater, and barring a miscalculation or a disaster, it should be more than enough.

I'm going to have to find another project for this yarn.

  • I just found your blog through the KR Member ring, and as soon as I started scrolling down and saw the picture, I knew exactly(!!) what color that was. I was soooooooooo close to getting Nassau Beach instead of Mediterranean for my Diamond Pullover. Then, when I went back for more of it, I got three other colorways for tank tops, but no Nassau Beach. I still love it, though.

  • If you're really up for another project with this yarn, try a Shapely Tank--I'm about to finish my second one. My size (40") has taken just over 3 skeins, so it's definitely not a bank-breaker.

    If you haven't already heard of it, the pattern is free from White Lies Designs, http://www.whiteliesdesigns.com
