So, I joined the “Secret of the Stole” knit-along and the first assignment was to swatch, which I did. I had some stash Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud in peppermint heather and (oddly) a few strings of freshwater seed pearls and voila, swatch number one, which I quite like. It was knit on the recommended US4 needles.
Knit had a sale. So, while I was loading up on Noro Silk Garden at 50% off (woo-hoo!), I noticed Merino Oro. Of course that was not on sale, but at $16 for 1375 yds who cares? Now, the Oro is a good bit thinner than the Alpaca Cloud (really cobb weight, I think), but I was curious, so enter swatch number two (on US1.5s).
So, what do you think? Gray or pink?
