Second moebius

KnittingPosted by Ann Helen Sun, March 29, 2009 00:08:38

When I came across this lovely hand-dyed yarn from Fleece Artist in Canada, it didn't take long before I wanted to do a plain garter stitch moebius. The yarn is Curlylocks, and the colorway is seashore - a beauiful, warm mix of pink, blue, green, golden with soft color transitions. I soon found out that bouclee yarn is not the easiest choice for a moebius, well, for knitting in general, but the result is so pretty I think it's worth it!

I am knitting this in plain garterstitch to show off the structure and color the best way. I tried stockinette first, but think the yarn and moebius make the yarn look better in garter stitch. The pattern is heavily inspired by this:

The photo doesn't give this yarn and color justice, so I include a photo borrowed from that shows it off a lot better! Too bad you can't see the softness, but trust me - the quality is soft and lustrous and I am so happy with it - looking forward to finish it, and in the meanwhile - enjoy knitting with it, although the loops sometimes get "stuck" in the needles and it shed a bit, but so does my dogs smiley

The Moebius is coming on very nicely, although it will be quite big - more like a shoulder wrap, as I don't want too much leftover yarn. This color is increadibly beautiful, and I love working on it, enjoying the color and quality as I knit along - now more than 3/4 done smiley

New photo during the progress. The colors have a lovely warm tone and is not as yellowish as the photo shows.
