i don’t think
that i have ever caught sight of
a linen blend yarn that pulls off such a striking halo.
as a matter of fact, i’m not sure i’ve seen a linen blend with
any halo whatsoever until now.
isn’t it pretty?
and see how the linen takes to the dye
in its own special way that’s unique from
the merino’s take on the color?
that tonality gives extra visual depth to each and every stitch.
as if that’s not enough
to make a knitter want to cast on something new asap,
the merino and linen fibers,
give the yarn somewhere between ‘shine’ and ‘glow’
look at the way the light catches it…i’m so excited about ‘milo’,
this new yarn from manos del uruguay.
the only downside? i’m having a bit of trouble
narrowing all the different stitches that look great in this yarn
down to just one to get started with,
but that’s exactly the kind of ‘problem’
that we knitter’s thrive on.
am i right?
note: now for just a little of the nitty-gritty.
i was given this skein from manos del uruguay to review,
but, you all know me, and
a free skein of yarn (even with a halo like this)
isn’t ever going to make me say i like what i don’t.
i’m much too stubborn and pig-headed for things like that…
