McIntosh Fingering from Apple Fiber Studios, and two finished objects!

img_0707 McIntosh is a fingering weight blend of superfine alpaca, Merino wool, and nylon, newly available from Apple Fiber Studios of Bellingham, Washington. And what a vivid and lively selection of colors!

I finished Eddy, a CustomFit sweater that flew off the US 9 needles, in spite of the miles of 1x1 ribbing the cowl neck required. Tuscan Aire is a chainette yarn, so it is incredibly airy. Even with that cowl, the entire sweater weighs less than 350 grams. I'm hoping for a day cool enough to wear it soon--it is so cozy. Plymouth has a great free pattern for a cabled cowl with this yarn, too!

And then there is Malt, knit with the delightful Hayfield Baby Blossom Chunky. It was SO much fun to knit this yarn, and it passed the machine wash & dry test with flying colors. Baby Blossom is also available in a selection of fun bright colors, too!
