Snar Labbar

Pattern: Snar Labbar
Yarn: Malabrigo Twist in Azul Profundo
Needles: US8 Addi Turbos
Notes: We just got the Twist in at the shop and I really wanted to try it. It's a worsted weight merino that has 8 plies. It's still slightly thick and thin. It is luscious. It's soft, shows of the stitches beautifully and has great color. I love it. The pattern is okay. There's some weirdness with the thumb increases and, I believe, a typo in the pattern but I just fudged my way through it and didn't make a note of it. Oh, and I cast on while riding in the car and only cast on 32 sts instead of 36. But the fit is good so no harm done.
