Summer is winding down. Do you feel it where you live? Boy, did I feel it this yesterday morning! I wanted to take a few more pictures of Talyssa modeling her new ensemble and I couldn’t wait to get back inside, although it probably didn’t help that I was barefoot!
Talyssa’s sweater is knit with Knitpicks Diadem. It is a single ply yarn which I found to be quite a challenge to knit with. The threads in each strand of yarn did not want to stay together (and there were a lot of ultra fine silk strands), so I had to be extra careful to get all of it on my needle with each stitch. It did get easier as I progressed, but knitting this sweater probably took twice as long as it would have with a plied yarn. On the plus side, this yarn is very silky and soft; it is made with mulberry silk/baby alpaca fibers. The photos don’t show how the sweater shimmers and shines.
The headband can be worn like an ear warmer or like a typical headband. Talyssa is modeling it both ways.
