Really loving this Rowan Lima yarn …May 19, 2013
I am knitting number one (and only) son a jumper (that’s Australian English for sweater) at his request. Surprised me really that he would want or wear a handknitted jumper. But I promised and so now it’s underway … but … he has quite sensitive skin and so only the very softest yarns would work for him. That’s where this absolutely delicious Rowan Lima yarn comes in … 84 percent baby alpaca, 8 percent merino wool and 8 percent nylon. It is sooooo soft and so lovely to knit up and I am really enjoying it. The pattern is a freebie on the Rowan website called Smisby by Marie Wallin. It has a quite simple fairisle yoke and the fabulous star stitch pattern for the body … which I have knitted before with various yarns and loved … but with this yarn it knits up much softer. I will share more pics when I have knitted more.
