This summer, I happened upon this great cotton yarn from Morris and Sons. It is a Pima cotton, which meant it was oh so soft. Lucky for me, I found a pattern that I knew would fit it perfectly two weeks later.
Roanoke, by Triona Murphy is a lovely short sleeve bottom-up sweater. It had my usual favorite elements- simple silhouette with a intricate yoke- so of course I fell in love. The yoke was made with a 4 row repeat of eyelets and yarn overs. It looked a simple enough, but let’s just say it took 4 froggings until the pattern clicked for me. I just could not figure out how to get the twist effect just right.
This was my first time working with Morris and Sons yarn and I really liked it. The yarn was soft and had great stitch definition. It didn’t expand too much when I wet blocked it either. The color did bleed quite a bit, but all was good because I washed it separately.
I am kind of mad at myself for only buying one sweaters worth of this yarn. However, travel restrictions didn’t allow me to buy more yarn than “needed.” Lucky for me, I get to return to Australia in October for a conference. Let’s just say I might have to bring an extra suitcase.😉
Until Next Time,
