i did visit a couple of yarn shops during my trip to copenhagen, and went looking for yarn for a new icosa ball – and happily ran into this wonderful coloured gray (purchased at Strikkeboden, fiolstræde 20)! i think it works really well with the graphic icosa pattern as it gives a feeling of black and white rather than a plain colour gray!
gray yarn: zara from filatura di crosa (extra fine merino)
black yarn: mérinos by anny blatt
colour: # 383
i paired it up with a black merino wool from anny blatt, and am so far 3/20 done with the triangles. i wanted the ball to be a little bigger than the first one, so i’m knitting with 3,5 mm needles. the two yarn types also builds a little different, the gray is a little thicker, but so far that isn’t causing any trouble…
