Zomboni Test Knit

Just finished another test knit for Casapinka, Zomboni.

Casapinka’s pattern, Zomboni, is a one-skein shawl, favoring variegated yarns. I wanted this one to be pretty awesome, so I pulled a lovely skein of Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere from my stash:

Isn’t it just lovely?


It is 400 yds of fingering weight yarn. Colorway: The Watering Hole.


The pattern is interesting without being too complicated. Once I got into the groove, the 10 row repeat went rather quickly.

I could watch tv and have real conversations with hubby. This would make a great stitch night knit.

It also works up quickly. I only worked on it in the evenings and parts of the weekend and finished it in 5 days.

The yarn is an absolute dream to work with. Cashmere is so soft and luxurious!

The shape is a long boomerang which makes it drape securely. Will be fantastic for the fall and winter months! (And spring and summer in cotton or linen, if you prefer!)

Casapinka has another test knit for me in the wings. Off to stash dive for TWO skeins for that project!
