yum – Mocha Barny

The wooly goodness has left the BarnYard!

So far, I have the sleeves and back done on Missy Scoop. To bring it out of the Country and into the City, I gave the pieces (as I finished them in turn cause for some reason I couldn’t wait!) a hot soapy sink bath, then several rinses.

This could be called Ultimate Wet Blocking

Then I spread it out to size on my rug and let it dry.

I’m diggin’ the Dk Olive on the Natural Grey – the ribbing has a slighty wooly-er, felt-y-er texture going on and contrasts nicely with the almost tweedy, mocha bod…

I’m also keeping track of how much yarn I’m using by weighing it with my new best friend, Mr. Digital Scale…

    Are you making this one a pullover, or does the cardigan get steeked? Looks great! I’ve been to Chester Farms and have some Cestari in my stash, too ~

    I am attempting the scoop in Elizabeth Lavold Cotton Patine using a size 5 needle for the bottom ribbing and a size 6 for the body. It seems to be turning out….. time will tell. I wish I had your speed!
