Notes

Frickin’ gorgeous yarn! I’m using an 8.00 mm needle because I don’t have a 7.00 mm.

OMG this is delicious - I may never take it off! Both skeins of the CashLuxe Fine weighed heavy (about 120 grams each) and I’ve got 25-26 grams of each colour left over. There’s a little bitty bit of the Silk Mist left over as well - it’s quite literally weightless - nothing registers on the scale but I’m guessing, based on the yardage estimate for the CashLuxe, I’ve got about 2 grams or 32 yards left over.

Update on leftovers: I decided to use my leftovers to make a version of Purl Soho’s Colorblock Handwarmers. I figured I could get more wear from fingerless mitts than a hat.
