Manic-in Monday

This week's sweater uses an incredible yarn that is often overlooked. Here's the description from the manufacturer's website:

A shining jewel in the fall line, this single ply Peruvian wool and Tencel blend is a lightweight affordable luxury. With generous yardage and a silk-like gleam, this yarn boasts a striking palette and soft hand.

We couldn't agree more! It's lightweight, it's got a whopping 197 yards, it's incredibly soft, and it has the most beautiful gleam... If you're not up for making a sweater right now (though this one is SO cute!) go to ravelry and check out all the projects people have made with this yarn. Hats, scarves, shawls, toys, gloves, bags, you name it! Seeing what other folks have made with a yarn is really inspiring. Check it out!

Sweater: Lexeme Cardigan from Berroco Book 289: Lustra knit with Berroco Lustra yarn
Scarf: Gorgeous lace scarf - lightweight, yet warm. Knit with Lang Alpaca Superlight (this is machine washable!) from the Fiber Trends Oak Leaf & Acorn Scarf Pattern AC#41
Bag: Offhand Designs Gatsby Bag in the beautiful Plaza fabric
