Introducing Bad Girl
This is bad girl, a new yarn of mine. I hand painted the yarn, and now I am making a beanie flap out of it. I can't decide if I should sell it or if I should give it as a Christmas gift. It reminds me of a certain pastel licorice candy, I was going to name it that but, I really don't want to infringe on someone's licensing, I don't roll that way.
The yarn is a Peruvian Highland wool, which I love, it is not scratchy, it is soft. It knits up like a dream. I am using size US 8 circs for this and I will switch to US 8 dpns when the time comes for crown shaping.
