Sue: 16 Sixteen Cable Hat by Circe Celles, knit out of Laines Du Nord, Guinco on size 4mm (US6). Note: on cable patterens and such, don’t knit it out of variagated yarn because the pattern gets lost and you don’t see it. I also knit the Thermis out of the same yarn and the yarn does not do the pattern justice at all.
Yarn Review Not as elaborate as Kari’s reviews, but it was nice to knit with and blocks well.
Kari: Rainbow Aeolian by Elizabeth Freeman, knit out of Noro Sekku on size 3.75 mm (US5). Note: On thish shawl, this yarn was not the best choice.
Yarn Review: This was not the best choice of yarns for this pattern, it did not block well, and there is a part that ripped out do the blockage, having any sort of tension while knitting hinders this yarn.
