I have to admit that being on a yarn diet is not as bad as I remember, especially when you get a gorgeous little package like this from Baa Ram Ewe.
Titus is a lovely yarn to knit with and although I find it a bit slippery for Fair Isle knitting it’s just perfect for lace and cabling. The colours are wonderfully balanced and have evocative names like Eccup, Dalby and Aire. Now they have created these dinky Pick ‘n’ Mix taster packs so you can try out more of their colours for yourself.
The little tube has 6 balls weighing 12g – enough to knit the fingerless mitts pattern that comes with the yarn. I wasn’t really feeling stripes and wanted to try something a little more adventurous. A quick trawl round Ravelry and I found a great pattern called Escalator Mittens by Tiina Huhtaniemi
I only finished the first one yesterday but I was so excited I thought you might excuse that I haven’t quite gotten round to the thumb!
And I still have all this lovely yarn left.
If you haven’t tried Titus yet, this set of mini skeins could be perfect for you.
