“One stitch, two stitch, red fish, blue fish”


Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa; what do fish have to do with stitch? They have absolutely nothing to do with knitting really, Dad thought it would be a great title.

Chimayo Tweed

“Chimayo Tweed”

Momma here, when I broke open the yarn label to Aunt Geri’s “Chimayo Tweed” I knew I was in for a treat. She spins three ply yarn that is consistently fine and incredibly clean. “Chimayo Tweed” is Marcello, marled with hand dyed silk. This yarn is fingering weight with memory to die for. Oh, it is so soft, and the color is incredibly rich.

I chose to knit a scarf using this yarn, but I am using a double stitch because of the incredibly thin strands that make up fingering weight. I have not been disappointed with this stitch. Needless to say it uses double the amount of yarn, and takes twice as much time to knit! The best things in life are worth waiting for, trust me.
