So I scored some of Knit Picks newest yarn, Andes del Campo.
This is a lofty 2 ply almost but not quite chunky (kind of like a thick worsted weight), wonderfully heathery yarn. I’m knitting my new favorite quick pattern, the Croc Socks. I first knit them out of another Knit Picks yarn, Wool of the Andes Tonals, and felted them. (on purpose).
Now, I’m a country girl and if I’m wearing socks, its because my feet are cold. So to have a pair of socks made from worsted weight felted wool is super cool!
Oh, yeah, back to Andes del Campo. I did the stockinette thing – very smooth. Did the K1 P1 rib, very nice. Did the cables – great definition. All in all, I like it. The colors are gorgeous; I’m using the Vineyard Heather colorway, and even though it’s a darker color, the stitches still pop.
