It’s still a secret

The secret project for One Planet Yarn and Fiber is out the door and has been received by the One Planet people. This is an excerpt from the email I received earlier this week:

Just wanted to let you know I received the sample [garment] yesterday. It is absoluteley ADORABLE!!!!

secret Clarissa

Now it’s just a matter of it being photographed on their end – I’ll share those just as soon as I’m able – and their tech editor needs to take a look at the pattern. Soon the pattern will be available for you as a pdf download here or on their site. In the meantime, take a look at the yarn that’s specified. Clarissa is a 50/50 cotton/merino wool blend with thick and thin bits. The colours are really interesting as the cotton and wool both take the dye very differently giving it a bit of a tweedy, rag effect when knitted up.
