Threepenny Pullover Yarn

I've been eyeing this Merino/Cashmere for a while. Now I've identified a project for it and WEBS has it on sale! That's a sign, isn't it? Well, I took it as a sign and bought enough tan yarn to make the Threepenny Pullover.

This yarn sounds like it's going to be a challenge--they say it feels stiff on the cone but it softens after washing. I think it's because it's intended for machine knitting. So, I'm going to have to do something I never do, wash the swatches.

Spinnity told me about a tip that will come in handy to identify the different swatches--tie knots in the yarn tail to show which needles were used for knitting. So for #6 needles, put 6 knots in the tail.

  • We may end up having another project in common...I really like this one, and even though I don't actually have a copy of the magazine yet, I know I want to do it.
