This doesn’t look like a diamond, but that’s because it was laying over my knee so you’re getting a distorted view. I wanted to show the texture of it. You can see at the bottom where the strands untwisted that it’s cabled of two different yarns. Of course, I don’t have the band with me but it’s a Caron (I think?) yarn. It has a wonderful texture and look but is a real (lady dog) to weave as you cannot see what you’re doing in all that texture! I may have many skips here which may or may not show up later.
I bought three skeins so I may try it on the 12″ for a hat… it should be ever so warm! But I don’t think I’m going to use it for the afghan project.
