the yarn, the yarn… oooh!

April 7, 2012

I’ve been knitting with Faery Wings again. It’s just a little bit magical — even if one does not have any particular faery or magical inclinations. Which one doesn’t.

So while I wait for the blocked shawl to dry and for more photogenic weather and lighting, a few tidbits…






Pattern: Bakau (to be published soonish — Aprilly)
Yarn: Fyberspates Faery Wings (silk/mohair/nylon, 100g/365m/399yds) — less than 2 skeins
Needles: 4mm
Shape: crescent-y
Size: 190cm x 65 cm (75in x 25in) — I’m working on a smaller 1-skein version as well
Construction: top down, all-in-one-knit-everything-as-you-go (no short rows)

I can report that Faery Wings frogs very well, despite its halo and fluffiness… tinking is worse, but frogging works j.u.s.t. f.i.n.e.

    Väntar med spänning på mönstret 🙂 Garnet ser fantastiskt ut, har det sån där lyster eller är det bilden som spökar?

      Hej! Nej, det r faktiskt inte bilden som spkar — det r 67% silke i Faery Wings, drav lystern, skulle jag tro. (Kul att du gillar mnstret ocks!)

      The lustre and shine of Faery Wings are not photoshopped or an optical illusion — the high silk content (67%) is what makes the yarn so lustrous.
