Today, let's focus on SQUISH!
First up, Honor, from Wool Addicts. This fuzzy, cozy yarn knits up nicely to a aran or bulky gauge on US 9 to 10 ½ needles. Each 50g ball contains 109 yards of 50% Suri alpaca and 50% Merino wool. We picked colors with an eye toward combining 2-3 of them in color-blocked accessories. One of my all-time most-worn accessories was Annabella's Cowl--I'm imagining it here using one color for the wide ribbed section, and then two additional colors for the longer stockinette section. Or you could use one color for the ribbing, and then work simple one round helix stripes in the two additional colors. (See below for tips on this!)
Also just arrived is Soffio Cashmere, a chainette blend of 65% Merino wool, 30% cashmere, and 5% nylon. Its nubby texture lends itself to simple designs, and just imagine how cozy Kate Saloman's Gathering Hat would be, knit with just two balls?
I'm working on sourcing some extra-large pom poms, but I finished the knitting on the Tranquil Hat. What a fun and engaging knit, and the medium size left me with enough yarn for a second hat, whether knit identically or with the colors reversed. It worked up quickly due to an advanced case of "just one more round".... This combination is Pearl Ten + Primavera, and other fun combinations were highlighted in this Instagram post.
