Great expectations!

This is a wonderful Italian chunky wool/ alpaca/ acrylic yarn on 6.5mm needles. I’ve knitted the tension square to help me with my design for a close fitting hat with detachable ear warmer.

I really love the definition of the stitches and the soft mossy colours. It’s funny, I react strongly to colour. A while ago I was using some brown chunky yarn. On the face of it the yarn was attractive, and I’d knitted other items in differences colours of the same yarn. Once I started with it I was disappointed but I just couldn’t put my finger on why. Eventually I realised, there just wasn’t enough warmth. So anyway I’m really looking forward to working with this yarn.
