Cable-wise, but not cashmere how I wanted to knit this pattern again, but in a nicer wool. I had purchased a bag of Merinos Otto Shadow in Rose for another project, but found that the intricate cables of that pattern did not show up amid the yarn variegation. I ripped that back and tried this pattern.
the cold, harsh light of day, I showed the color contrast between two balls of yarn from the same dye lot. I ripped back one sleeve and reknit it, switching yarns every round or every other row (when knitting back and forth). I can also see the striping effect where I switch between two balls, one light, and one dark.
Yes, Merinos Otto is a very soft yarn. But I am done with superwash wool (except for socks). Please remind me before I succumb again.
