We headed south yesterday and had DH make a little detour ... as a result I came out with Manos. It's cheaper there than up here.

The infamous MSCS. But I'm afraid I didn't get enough skeins. I only bought one :oops: on my part. Should have read the pattern first. But I didn't even know they carried it at that store until I got there.

It's wool, I used it on a scarf here on my blog... http://dragonwingarts.com/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=645

I'm at work and can't upload the picture right now. But it gives you an idea of how it works up...

very pretty!!

would this work for entrelac? like noro or SWS does? I have never used it and have a entrelac purse pattern I'd like to do in spring colors.. but what I read about the SWS natural pink the colors will fade... I googled this and can't really see where a lot have done entrelac with it.. did find a hat but it looked the same all over the tiers were not different.. :teehee:

I tried some Manos in an entrelac pattern and don't think it worked well. The Manos doesn't stripe, it's variegated and so the pattern didn't show up too well. The entrelac looked better in the Malabrigo I was using but even then not as nicely as the Noro or Patons SWS.

Best,
Susan

I knit a cardigan with a deep deep rust using Manos. LOVE IT!

I also purchased a 'shop sample' 12-squares blanket, all 12 squares using a different color of MANOS. LOVE IT! FYI: the squares are probaby 12"x12".

I love your color #109! I have some of it in my Stash now! LOVE IT! I have a pattern idea for it...but it has not gone onto the needles yet. The pattern calls for vertical stripes of different yarn colors and types. It is one of those cuff-to-cuff sweaters, knitted sideways, all in one piece...instead of from bottom to top. I am going to incorporate Manos color 109 somewhere in it! I have all my yarns assembled..just haven't gotten to it!

I didn't use OPTIONS for my MANOS...it splits too easy. Addis are best for MANOS.
