It was the recently acquired Lana Grossa Royal Tweed so close at hand on Saturday night and here's where I'm at so far on the
sleeve swatch. It weighs nothing. This has to be loftiest yarn I've ever worked with. It's also quite weird to work with. There are two practically unspun plies of merino wool lightly wrapped around a very tightly spun wool "thread" -- the two unspun plies like to move along the "thread" as I knit and get all bunched up. I'm not sure there's a way to avoid it and, at first, I was quite dismayed that I'd bought enough for two sweaters. The lightly wrapped plies are also, predictably, very weak -- without that thread to wrap around, this stuff would disintegrate at a glance. I'm getting used to it. It's quite nice when it's knit up... it's squishy-squashy, mooshy-squooshy, and even oofy-poofy.*
So, then, it's a Let's Kick-off This Labor Day Weekend Party Started Early Contest wherein you guess what sweater I'm knitting based on... the kinds of sweaters I like to knit, what kinds of things I've been knitting recently, how this one has started, and possibly further clues as warranted by the very possible lack of correct entries. You may enter as often as you wish, but only those with correct guesses will be amongst the randomly-drawn names for yet-to-be-determined prizes.
*Yes, I said, PRIZES. If you can also or instead tell me the source for Squishy-squashy, Mooshy-squooshy and even Ooofy-poofy, there shall be another (also yet-to-be-determined) prize.
Leave your comments/entries on this post, please. The deadline will be midnight (your local time) on Sunday with the winner(s) announced on Monday. (Unfortunately, the people I knit out with last night will have to be disqualified from the sweater portion of the program.)
