This is the first time that I’ve used Red Heart Fiesta, a tweedy yarn that’s 73% Acrylic and 27% Nylon.
It may be called Light Periwinkle, but it has little bits of white, dark green and bright pink in it too, a pretty and rather unusual color combination.
I suspect that I should thank the 25% nylon content for both this yarn’s delicate sparkle and the problem I had with splitting. For some reason I kept catching very fine, nearly invisible filaments with my hook, which was aggravating because it slowed me down. arrrrgh.
I’m very pleased with the end results though!… a handsome ripple for a foster boy.
