The colder temperatures are here and the wind picks up on the north shore of Nova Scotia, Canada, I’m happy to quietly knit, relax and repeat in front of the fireplace! It’s time to knit up a nice colorful hat or two for those cooler fall mornings. I’m certainly looking forward to getting wrapped up in some warm knits in the upcoming months so this week I’m knitting with Universal Yarn Uni Merino and Uni Merino Mini. My knitting for the next few days will bring some color to the drab days of winter!
Universal Yarn Uni Merino and Uni Merino Mini (previously known as Curio), is a wonderfully soft and squishy superwash merino yarn. Being a 75% superwash merino 25% and nylon mix, it’s perfect for colorwork knitting in socks, fingerless gloves or hats.
This yarn comes in 50 amazing colors which makes the possibilities endless when planning your colorwork projects. It’s machine washable, so it’s perfect for gift knitting!
Uni Merino comes in 3.5oz [100g] balls offering 437yds [400m] and Uni Merino Mini comes in 25g and contains 109yds [99m]. This is perfect to add a pop of color to your project without having to have larger quantities of accent colors on hand.
I’m really looking forward to casting on a fun hat project this week using Uni Merino. I’m also sharing my experience knitting the West Wind Hat using Knitter’s Pride Cubics dpns. Tomorrow I’m deciding which of the 50 colors I’ll be picking for my hat! Join me!
