I love this colourway. I especially like the way the twisted bars of treble crochet show it off.
I'm not a huge fan of the colour orange. Pink is lovely but can get boring. But a pink-ish orange (i.e. peach): yummy. Trust me, its prettier in person, much less "fleshy" and it glistens with silvers - the digital camera is doing that thing it does with reds.
It's hipknits sockweight cashmere. I've had trouble finding the right project to showcase its gentle variegation. But I think I've found it. Inspired by some of Wormheads hats (see Lixie's WIP of one too) and, er, um, an Orange Broadband advert. These circles will eventually be a scarf. Joined loosely together and arranged rather randomly - like bubbles. Perhaps with the addition of a bit of brown merino to keep it order and set off the russets in the colourway. But I'll see when all the circles are done.
I've been using the adjustable ring method to start the circles off. It's easy and neat.
