Make that Sagebrush colour.

My autumn knit last year was the Coddingon wrap in aqua blue. This yarn is amazingly warm and very soft. I would not suggest it for an item that gets much wear such as socks or mitts but I love my wrap and wore it all through this very cold winter we just came through.

This yarn is very soft, but the fingerless mitts I made with it began pilling after the first wear, and after about the 5th time I'd worn them, they had begun to felt. The design on the mitts is pretty much ruined, and I'm quite disappointed. I purchased quite a bit of it, unfortunately.

I wanted to make a pair of warm and soft socks for the at home in the winter. They turned out soft and very warm. They stretch a little so I am hoping they will bounce back to shape when I wash them. This is one of my favorites. I plan to make a shawl or cowl next.

Just tried Capra/Capretta for the first time.... Delicious! So soft you'd think it was 100% cashmere and it works up with a beautiful hand. I've combined it with a variegated yarn using a traditional Faire Isle peerie that I reworked. It looks and feels FABULOUS! I priced similar yarns from everywhere and once again KintPicks has done it. Excellent quality for generally half price, making their sale just a stupid bargain. If you have a few $ to spend, don't waste it on another brand.
