I loved the Buckwheat Bridge angora/cormo/kid mohair blend yarn I got from the cormo booth at Maryland, I just had to start working with it!
The label says it’s made with 100% solar power. I don’t know what that means, but I imagined big sun tea containers stuffed full of fluff, sitting around on a tropical lanai. But, considering their farm is in New York state, my "vision" may be a touch inaccurate.
This fiber will be a birthday gift scarf for a friend, so deadline knitting commences. I’ve got a month, so it’s not that bad of a deadline. I’m using the Montego Bay scarf pattern sans fringe from the latest Interweave Knits, slightly adjusted for my gauge and a #5 needle. It’s an easy stitch pattern to remember, and is perfect for evening knitting when you’re knackered. It’s going to bias something fierce, but I think it’ll look like ribbons do when you cut the ends on the bias. We’ll call that charming, instead of biasing.
