No big secret that I LOVE Norah Gaughan. Her designs wake up every creative brain cell I have. And so when I saw Cormorant [rav link], I knew I needed to dye some yarn to make it. Luckily the MCN (merino/cashmere/nylon) base comes in a variety of weights, so I was able to replicate the balance of Ultra Alpaca and Ultra Alpaca Fine with MCN Worsted and MCN Sock.
I’ve almost finished the Worsted section of the sweater:
Colourway: Cliffs of Insanity (or, if you’re Patrick, “Just Some Really Pretty Cliffs in Ireland…Nothing at all to do with Kim’s State of Mind”)
And I have to tell you…the SQUOOSH factor of this yarn is outstanding! I stop every second row (or stitch…just saying) to squeeze it.
One more sleeve to go…and then onto the edging…
