I just couldn’t resist it. I sat down after lunch and cast in the Manos del Uruguay – just to knit a few rows and see how the colour looks when knit up. I have now knitted the first skein off and it is too dark to have a look and see what the colours are like 🙂
It’s fabulous yarn – really warm and soft, and a treat to knit with.
One thing I do know is that this is going to be a disappointingly short scarf. I can’t send for another skein, it’s far too expensive and, more importantly, there would be a dye lot problem. *sigh* I don’t know, I have never seen the point in a scarf that doesn’t wrap all the way around one’s neck and still dangle satisfactorily.
The other thing I do know, is that I would dearly love to get hold of another skein or two – with which to knit a matching hat.
No photos yet. It’s pitch dark here.
