a taste of friday

An evening spent tonight at The Purple Purl for another wonderful yarn tasting event by knitty.com. I love joining in on these nights when I can.

Tonight, an interesting selection of yarns, including the one above which contained 5% silver! Boy, did I feel luxurious knitting with silver!

Here’s what I have to show for the evening. A tasty swatch and a gorgeous skein of Misti Alpaca Worseted Tonal. I was the first one chosen for a prize tonight and the Alpaca was my first choice! Yay!

  1. Oohh, what a great night out! Knitting with silver — I love it! I’ve been wanting to knit with a yarn that has stainless steel in it so I’d love to know more about what you thought of this one.

    • Evelyn, it was actually quite rough. To me it felt a little like hemp. Maybe because the cotton it was mixed with was pretty rough. It was kind of cool, though, the idea of knitting with silver!
