I spent the last day-plus of the convention mentally auditioning dozens of yarns for my first Swirl Sweater.
I wound up landing somewhere completely different than where I started. Fortunately, that was (mostly) in my stash!
I’ll be working with Malabrigo Rios in the Paris Night colorway (the darker skeins) out of my stash, complemented by MadelineTosh DK in Composition Book Gray (the lighter skeins).
I bought the Rios, if I remember correctly, at Bloomin’s Black Friday sale. Of course, I loved the color and the Malabrigo colorways just glow in the Rios base.
On Sandra’s suggestion, my first Swirl will be a centered oval. Specifically, the plan is Copper Collage, which has a worsted/aran weight paired with a DK weight. I wanted contrast with both color and weight, so I picked the Composition Book.
I plan to swatch over the weekend at the Lake. Expect sunset pictures. Soon.
