A new local yarn store opened in my city last year, but sadly I’ve only been able to visit once. Homeschooling three kids just isn’t very compatible with visiting lovely yarn stores to browse and shop. (No, really, it’s not.) But on my one visit there I picked up this pretty yarn, Manos Del Uruguay Maxima in Slate. It’s merino and so nice. The colors are hard to describe, but they go between olive green and a sort of slate blue. I’d been wanting to knit the popular Ravelry pattern for A Noble Cowl, so I made that my most recent project. Sometimes after a project is done I wish I’d made a different yarn choice, but this wasn’t one of them. Love this yarn with this pattern! I think I’m going to wear this all winter long.
