This time even before it's all done. One skein of Miss Babs SHIRUKU in a Babette, a one off color ... WRECK OF THE HMS WARWICK ... GORGEOUS! I cast on 144 sts with the 3.5mm/16" circular and found another pretty slipped stitches pattern. "Grain de poudre" ... powder grain and oh so lovely and beautiful in this merino and silk blend. These little one skein projects are also a lovely way to try out a new fingering weight yarn and create a substantial amount of fabric versus just a gauge swatch to decide on the liking of it for a larger garment. Without further ado ... the EMERALD cowl though Suzanne and I have almost decided that the pup will go by EMME ... that's what I will call her. New to the family and Suzanne will have her hands full again come next week!
