Tata, the Cashmere/Silk yarn!
Hi, the "Hamburger Wollfabrik" is very fast. Yarn is here since thursday. It's totally soft but difficult to knit, because it consists of 6 very thin plies not twisted. First I swatched with 3mm Needles (for about 25 stitches and 34 rows in 10cm x 10cm). Then I decided to start the hem with 2mm with no further swatching and not taking into account that there was a dramatical difference (i.e. 30 stitches to 40 rows). So I raveled up one nights work yesterday and started again.
It feels like knitting cat hairs with sewing needles, but it looks really fine. I'll keep you up to date.
