something cuddly

As I have quite a tight knitting schedule at the moment, there always come things unplanned. Like this one. It’s cuddly and soft and huge.

I’m talking about Authenticity from softsweater knits in Countess Ablaze Lord of Mohair Aran.

the Authenticity pattern printed out in black and white, showing the name of the pattern plus a person wearing the shawl in front, surrounded by four skeins of pink/grey big yarn, as always on a white blanket.

How could that happen?
It all started with this lovely colour of mohair Aran I found when a friend told me about a coupon code on the Countess Ablaze site. I never tried her yarns before but I was curious about them. So I ordered this for me totally untypical yarn – compared to lace it’s enormous. But I just can’t stop touching it and a quick satisfactional knit was really needed after this exhausting week.

I hope I’ll get to finish it by the end of next week because I’m really freezing my butt of while I’m waiting for my train to and back to my university. Currently I’m around halfaway done and it’s really a lovely pattern.

white blanket and half finished knitting piece on top of it, traingle shaped. One of the three caked skeins is used up about 1/3, a fourth skein uncaked laying beneath the other skeins, all above the knitted piece.

Perhaps I’m learning to like such bigger yarns…
Do you like big knits?

    I’d rather speak of favourite yarn qualities rather than of favourite yarn weights, although yarns above DK weight are quite exausting to knit, in my opinion. Nonetheless, if I like the quality (something sheepy, nicely spun), I’d love to knit heavier weights as well.
