I received this skein of Sundara fingering merino, Island Breeze few months ago from the subscription. It is a monthly subscription since April but I have terminated the subscription at June because I am just not into the yarn base Sundara chose for. Island Breeze is a very beautiful colorway and I used it to knit a new rectangular shawl.
I have completed a full repeat at the moment and I have decided that it is the right choice of yarn for this design. I was struggled for a while as if the semi-solid colorway is too variegated to show off the pattern details. I was real close to frog the whole thing and start it with another solid colorway until this noon I snapped few shots of the project then I reassured myself that I will stick with Island Breeze to complete the whole shawl.
This fingering merino has a very good yardage, around 500yard/100gm. I will be expecting a 65″ shawl knitted with it using a 3.75mm needle. So far I haven’t come across any knot yet in this yarn and I thought I found some of them when I wound the yarn. Well, we will see~
