Twisty Turns

I just started Twisty Turns from Wrap Style. I'm using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino in navy. It's simple pattern and a fun knit.

WIP: Twisty Turns from Wrap Style In Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Navy

Unfortunately, the dye from this yarn comes off quite easily. I'm might be dragging my feet on completing this one. You can see the pictures of the dye effect on my blog.

    I really like this pattern! I've been thinking about making it too. I look forward to seeing yours. Dye rubbing off on your needles is no fun!

    Great pattern! I may have to break down and purchase this book now too.
    I'd be tempted to "whine" about the smurfing good time you're having to the Debbie Bliss company directly... they must have an e-mail address on the website! And I'm sure they don't mean for that to happen. Maybe a bad dye lot??? I've used their baby cashmerino in some dark colors and not had a problem.
    Too bad, though, as it's comprimising the enjoyment of your project. Hope you can keep at it.

    I don't have this book, but I love this pattern--I ahve some yarn in my stash--can you just tell me how many skeins and what gauge? This way I can plot my knitting fate~!~

    The yarn in the pattern calls for Classic Elite Lush. For finished sizes 36(41,46.5,52)", it's 6(6,7,8) skeins, respectively.

    Was the twist supposed to be in the back along with the front? I find it totally lumpy that way and did mine with a flat back. Do comment as I may be reading the pattern wrong.
