Have I mentioned that I love cable knitting? Because I love cable knitting. So when I saw the Nennir cowl pattern, I knew I wanted to give it a try.
Such a beautiful Celtic cable pattern called for a gorgeous yarn to match. Specifically, I wanted a variegated green to complement the cables in the pattern. I found exactly what I was looking for when I bought Stroll Tonal Sock Yarn in Canopy.
I’m actually using this yarn to make a full-length scarf in the Nennir pattern, instead of just a cowl. As I near the halfway point of the scarf, I’m very happy with how the project is going. As always, I promise pictures when I’m done. 🙂
I would absolutely use this yarn again. The only odd thing? It has a very noticeable (chemical? dye?) smell. I’m optimistic that it will go away when I wash it, though. Has anyone else noticed it with this yarn? I haven’t experienced it with other Knit Picks yarns.
