How can you not love this yarn? It is so beautiful. It is soft, and drapes fabulously. It has just the right amount of shine and halo.
I count between 5.5-5.75 sts/inch. 22.5 sts/4″ to be precise. Also, 32 rows/4″. Neither of these fit the specs of Cardigan for Arwen (the intended project), but I am not afraid of math. I am, however, afraid of getting the cables to line up properly! I’m going to ball up a hank of the Spruce and do some swatching in the cable pattern to see what I get.
I may end up doing something else, but, I think I really want to do this one. I have to sit down with the pattern and see what I can sort out. A small part of me just wants to do a simple, in-the-round striped raglan sweater. But…. well, we’ll see!
