Monday Kerstin showed her lovely blanket knit in cashmere. She said the cashmere made Kersti seem COURSE! How could Kersti seem course!?, I asked. Kerstin then challenged (she’s good at that)… “Get some, you’ll see”.
(Ok, let’s see. I know there is some kind of cashmere in the stash. ) So...I found these little skeins of vintage yarn that a friend gave to me when discarding her stash some time ago. This is the only yarn I kept from her gift as it 'said' it would be a wonderful project someday. The skeins are probably from the 50’s and they are a blend of cashmere and lambs wool. It’s soooo soft! It feels like a cloud and you could certainly enjoying rolling around in it if there were more skeins. I have three and a partial. It DOES make Kersti seem course. "Like twine", as Kerstin said. This lovely yarn would make a lovely baby layette but, there are no babies in my future. It might make up into a beautiful Flower Basket Shawl from the new IK or a pair of gloves like Sandy’s. So many possibilities! But it will slip back into the stash for now.
Kerstin wins...Kersti looses.
BUT, you can't beat Kersti for color! Check out our Kersti Along Blog and you'll see!!
