Joyful handfuls of Klee
This is the most exciting yarn purchase I have ever made!! I purchased the Klee Scarf Kit in handpainted cashmere by A.L. de Sauveterre. I actually got the DK weight yarn which has a different name and pattern - I started it last night - had to drop everything to get my hands on this! It was my first time knitting with 100% cashmere, which is truly a delight. And the colorways are amazing. Fun fun fun!!! And this is something I can really see wearing a lot!
You get 8 small (wound) balls of different handpainted colorways to knit as you please, any number of rows in a simple rib pattern. One challenge that concerns me is weaving in all those ends. At first I started a fibonacci sequence, and then I realized - I didn't want to many ends so I am doing larger numbers of rows. I also have been playing with the Random Stripe Generator for some inspiration in the striping which is very cool.
