One week in, two sleeves down

The day I was hired at Anzula, I assured myself that I would knit my way through all 16 lines of yarn. As presumptuous a task as it might have been for a beginner, I’ve knit with eight lines in 13 months: Cole, Cricket, Dreamy, Inyo, Oasis, Squishy, Wash My Lace, and a discontinued Superwash Merino single-ply.

And (hopefully) come November, I can add Haiku and Breeze to the list. 

I will be knitting the Jasper Diamond Hoodie, by Kristen Rengren. The hoodie pattern can be found in Vintage Baby Knits, which I bought on Amazon.com for $12.97.

The pattern calls for a DK weight yarn, and since I’ve knit with Cricket and Oasis, I decided to combine two strands of Haiku using two swifts and a ball winder -- a trick I picked up from Sabrina Famellos, the Anzula founder.

  Two skeins of Haiku in the colorway Hyacinth wound into one center-pull ball.

Progress: One week in, two sleeves down.

Two strands of Haiku held together knits up comparable to that of a DK/Sport weight. 

 

Thanks for reading.
