as soon as I finished my fingering weight cream & sugar cowl I immediately cast on a dk/light worsted one. I've wanted to do one in a bigger weight yarn for a while now and I must say I'm pretty happy wtih how it's looking.
that being said, I've only finished the second cable twist and have three more repeats to go.
I bought the yarn I'm using in Scottsdale at Jessica Knits off of McDowell Mtn Road.... go there, she's wonderful and her shop is pretty much an Alana Dakos fan club as far as shop samples go!
I think the yarn I am using is a Manos silk blend. I bought it to make Ebb. I tried twice to knit Ebb with it. I gave it my best shot and ended up ripping it both times. I like the pattern. I like the way it looked on the model. I don't like knitting it, maybe I'll find a yarn that will work better for it but I gave up using this gorgeous Manos.
I'm happy I have it around.
I have enough that I can make a beret or two as well... which works out nicely since I do love to wear a beret...
