When I work on projects with more than one yarn, I tend to stick to the same yarn weight and often enough even the same brand to get the result I want. So when SweetGeorgia Yarns asked for patterns that use yarns of a different weight, I was hesitant at first, but intrigued by the idea. So it was time for swatching... and here is what I came up with:
Penna is knit from SweetGeorgia Yarns Merino Silk Fine, a smooth light fingering weight yarn from Merino and silk, and SweetGeorgia Yarns Silk Mist, a fuzzy cobweb lace from silk and kid mohair. So not only are the yarns of a different weight, but the texture is very different as well.
Stripes in a tiny raindrop pattern blend with with stripes in elongated stitches. Isn't it amazing, how difference can create so much balance?
