Sock (alas, only one so far)
Schoeller-Stahl "Fortissima Colori"
2 US Sized 2 circs.
(Directions and pattern from Cat Bordi "Fortissima Fairisle Socks... for the Skacel Collection)
Plymouth Yarn "BOKU"
US Sized 6 circ (preference)
One sock down, one to go! This sock was done on 2
circs (US size 2) I used the Turbo Naturals...
I am also working on the Artyarns P50: Diamond Modular
Scarf. Using US size 6 circ. I'm knitting it
with the Plymouth Yarn Boku (very much like Noro but
half the cost). I do find that it knits easier than
the Noro (less texture).
this Shrug is made from Baby Alpaca Grande yarn with size US11 circ. Pattern is fairly easy.
CO 120 (I used long tail/slingshot)
