I'm Intoxicated


This pattern is so fabulous. I was smitten the moment I saw it. I has the right mix of color & pattern to keep me interested. It works up fast too.
I'm using Cascade Pima Tencel . I had some difficulty picking the colors. My sister recommended the yarn and picked the blue and green from her available colors. I finally chose the deep orange. It needed the right intensity to make the mosaic visible. Thanks, Kristin!

That looks really beautiful. How is the tencel working for it? I wanted to make this, but I'm vegan and don't use silk, and so would need a sub.

I've heard a lot of good things about this yarn. The label says hand wash, but I know people use it for baby clothes and machine wash it. It's very soft and silky. I'm enjoying working with it.

Amazing work so far - and the colour choice is fab (worth the effort, for sure).

Gorgeous stuff! It looks like a meditative mandala kind of knitting project.

What a great idea! I have some Classic Elite Pima/Tencel and it is luscious yarn.
