sport weight yarn

Yarn Stash: Quince & Co Chickadee

Colorway: Delft

Whoops, looks like Quince & Co's Chickadee found its way into my stash again. I am seriously in love with this yarn. It is not the softest yarn I have ever worked with, but it is comfortable, squishy, warm and, one of my favourite aspects about it, the stitch definition of this yarn is just divine. I love how it knits up in stockinette and it opens up nicely to show off lacework. It is also one of the not so common sport weight yarns, one of my favourite weights as it sits right between fingering and DK weight.

One example of how nicely an FO turns out in this yarn.

As many other designers, I am often several designs ahead of the current project I'm working on. This is important to me as it keeps my mind active and busy and I don't have to worry about not having any projects to do in the upcoming months. So what do I have in store for this yarn? Well, I'm planning on using cables and textured stitches to form a cowl, but with a twist! Or tip. Triangular tip! But this design won't be coming out until the end of summer or early autumn. The yarn is 100% wool, so I might get a heat stroke if I start it too early. ;-)
