I am thinking about the next bigger knitting project but meanwhile I took out the yarn I purchased this summer in Germany.
Nowadays many firms manufacture variegated yarns. Quite often they contain white as the lightest colour, which I don't like. In this case the transitions are not so contrasting between not the lightest gray and black. The yarn is merino 50 g/400 m and I have one ball of it. I tried it but to my taste it is too soft (this is often quite usual for thin merino yarns). Thus, I combined it with a thin cotton (don't remembe the name but the metrage is about 100 g/1400 m).
rätikuks ei ole mul vastavas jämeduses ja sarnase faktuuriga sobivat lõnga, et lisada).
Now I like the best this shawl construction (for a short rows shawl I don't have enough yarn in the same weight and texture to combine with).
