Notes

A few thoughts on the yarn:

  • It’s very soft- which is right on the money for a kids’ -sweater, but it’s splitty as all get out. Go for blunt needles if you use this yarn. (I’ve had great success with the Lykke Driftwood needles.)

  • we have incredibly hard water, which is unforgiving to yarns where the color hasn’t been aggressively set. When we blocked it, there was quite a lot of dye discharged into the water. I’ll do a citric acid soak before i let Genevieve run off with it, because, why not.

Rows per inch didn’t match gauge, so I’m working to 16cm before starting crown decreases.
