I though it wold be to participate in the Ravellenic games this year, my goal was to make a large shawl or similar and use more of my hand spun yarn in another project. So off I went to the yarn store an find this amazing yarn that didn’t really fit for what I had in mind. Which was Air by Veera Välimäki so I bought 4 balls, total of 100 grams and 1218 meters, it seemed enough for anything or so I thought. After test knitting a patten searching I decided to make Hansel by Gudrun Johnston in double yarn. I started and realized that I needed more yarn so I bought 4 more balls + an extra skin purple silk for the border, It wasn’t quite enough but I made it enough using every scratch of yarn.
The result is beautiful but different, very different from the patten and I like it a lot.
The amazing yarn is Canard:s Qoperfina 8 balls + 150 meters jaipur silk fino, needles 4,0 mm. It’s larger then the original, but with smaller needles.
