Recently I hosted a Luxury Scrap Swap on Ravelry. It was only a small swap, about 13 of us altogether. Everyone sent me 100-300g of luxury fibre which I split up into usable scraps and divided up amongst us all. I then sent back the same amount of scraps as was sent to me. The fibres were amazing, we had silk, camel, angora, mohair, alpaca, cashmere, silk….silk….I have probably forgotten some…I added in some undyed alpaca/silk top and some lumpy bumpy scoured alpaca fleece and made some textured batts. Spun into fat, floofy, silky soft singles!
and I am knitting the yarn into a Nella cardigan but with a few mods, such as a bit more length and some extra shaping for the hips…
It is a delicious pattern, a bit sexy and perfect to wear over a strappy top or dress
I am loving the whole thing, from the swap right down to the knitting…I’ll keep you posted of my progress.
