Introducing my newest yarn base....Downy!
This yarn is a DK weight blend of merino, silk and yak and is incredibly soft, warm and cushiony.
I am extra sensitive to wearing wool against my skin and I felt almost zero itch factor, while tromping around in the woods behind Tin Mountain today.
Each 4oz skein has approximately 230 yards. I knit this cowl with one skein!
Beautiful definition when knitting textured stitches....I love this yarn base!
I gave Ken my phone to snap off some pictures and he became Mr. Photographer...ey yi yi. We had a fun day though out in the woods trying out these new snowshoes. I wish I had given snowshoeing a try years ago to help make the long days of winter a little more enjoyable up here in the North Country.
If you haven't tried it yet, give it a try, you may love it!
Spring is definitely on it's way and all of the snow we have had this winter will be a blessing, filling up the rivers and wells that were almost dry last summer.
As much as I am enjoying my time out in our winter woods, I am so looking forward to warmer temperatures and my toes in the sand again, but still..how beautiful is this?
