This is Kiki, also from the Great Adirondack Yarn Company, and it is a worsted weight 50% alpaca/30% silk/20% merino. The colorway is Trillium. I have 4 skeins of this, at 250 yards/skein. I can't even begin to describe to you how buttery soft this yarn is. Ooh la la!
And here I thought I'd do a little yarn freeze until I had knitted up some of the many projects on my list! But if I'm going to melt a yarn freeze, might as well be will some of the nicest yarn I've ever owned! Since my wonderful, thoughtful husband gifted this to me, I am determined to make sure that whatever I knit with this stays mine! So now the question is - what do I knit with this?
I'd like to do a lace stole/shawl with the Sirino, but I need something that won't get lost with a multi-colored yarn. Knit Mongrel, didn't I see some time ago that you were doing the Baltic Sea Stole? Do you like the pattern? Of course, I have no idea how much yarn that pattern calls for, but I feel like I can do something pretty respectable with 675 yards. I, of course, also have Victorian Lace Today to look through, but since almost all of those are pictures in solid colors, it's hard to tell if a variegated yarn will work well with the patterns.
I have plenty of the Kiki to knit another Clapotis, this one for myself. Of course, I already have a lovely Clapotis gifted from Knit Mongrel, so I don't really need another one. And I have absolutely no idea what to do with the Boomerang. So, people, any suggestions you might have for projects will be greatly appreciated!
Man, it's times like this when I really wish I had my Ravelry invite.
