I mean, I had fun and all, but nothing can top the weekend-before-last as far as Epic Fiber Events is concerned. Nevertheless I managed to get a little bit done. I finished the Honey Cowl made from one skein of Classic Shades by Universal Yarn.
I was surprised by how well this yarn blocked out. You don’t usually get much play from damp acrylic (it’s a 70/30 wool/acrylic blend). But this stuff handled nicely as I was patting it into shape, tugging it this way and that, and generally fussing over it.
This is definitely a yarn I would recommend to anyone looking for a Noro substitute. You don’t get a lot of options, if you’re in the market for a yarn with long color repeats. (There’s Mini Mochi, of course, but those are fingering weight and a little on the pricey side.)
