Swatch and SWAP time.
Same pattern (only in red a 2 repeat and in blue a 3), different yarn:
The pattern is from the green/yellow shawl in Handwerken Zonder Grenzen (dutch mag).
The yarn is: Red mohair from a farm in Southern France on needles 4 mm, and the blue is Rowan Donegal Lambswool.
Knitted this yesternight during the WK final and came to these conclusions:
1. I prefer the Tour de France instead of the WK
2. This pattern is not very difficult, just a little bit, but its a "8stitcher" perfect for me.
3. I really like the colours (have different shades) of the mohair, but the material is tooo fuzzy for me.
And that's why I want to swap it.
SO, if you're living in Europe, or better: the netherlands, and want to have this yarn:
It's about 200 grams, packed in a "ziploc". Bought this in France, there's no information about metres, gauge etc. There's 1 sticker on most of the ball: "le mohair des fermes de france".
Tell me what you want to swap, I like : sockwool (min. 70 % wool), all kind of lacey wool yarn, and so much more, take a look in your stash or books. Just surprise me with an email, and I will let you know! Mail to: snbrotterdam at yahoo dot com.
Other knitting (reading) news: This talented and very nice knittingwonder was so kind to lend (is that the word for "lenen"?) me "knitting rules!" by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (Yarn Harlot) so I could read this during my holiday, but I can give it back to you this tuesday, almost finished it!
