Knitting has teamed up with Gwen Wagner-Adair (@petitchoufleur on Instagram) to host a mystery knit-along and hap workshop series.
It’s not too late to join the KAL – the second instalment is in Knitting 181, June 2018, on sale now and the first is in Knitting 180, May 2018, which you can buy here.
Here’s what you will need to join our KAL:
Blacker Yarns Samite Silk Blend 3 Ply
30% Bluefaced Leicester wool,
40% Shetland wool, 20% Ahimsa silk,
10% Gotland wool (approx 460m per 100g)
For whole hap:
2 x 100g skeins in Aspens’ Shiver (undyed) (A)
1 x 100g skein in Frozen Bud (B)
1 x 100g skein in Bursting Figs (C)
1 x 100g skein in Burnished Night (D)
1 x 100g skein in Eternal Day (E)
Alternative yarn suggestion
Smaller amounts are needed in contrasting colours so cost-effective suitable alternatives would be Jamieson’s of Shetland Spindrift or Jamieson & Smith 2 Ply Jumper Weight, both of which come in 25g balls in a wide range of colours.
For the whole hap you would need the following:
5 x 25g balls in A
1 x 25g ball each in B, C and D
4 x 25g balls in E
Note: Blacker Yarns has plans to release Samite in 25g balls but does not yet have a fixed date for this.
