My “Learning to Knit Lace” -project is progressing extremely well. My Haven scarf is now finished, and I didn’t even need to use lifelines at all. Well it was a nice and easy pattern, I must admit, and when you are knitting with such a chunky yarn it is easy to see what the pattern is doing. But nevertheless I am pleased. I’d definitely recommend the pattern for a first lace knitting project.
The yarn I used for this project is Araucania’s Coliumo Solid, in a lovely berry red shade. Despite the name, the colour isn’t plain solid, there are lighter and darker areas so I’d call it semi-solid. But whatever you call it, I love the colour and the multi-tonal effect. It is a super-chunky single yarn, very loosely spun but slightly felted which makes it quite stable. I am thinking it would be lovely to knit a jumper with this yarn, it would be very cosy and warm.
