Prairie Colour Mix

Prairie Colour Mix
I'm testing this super chunky yarn from Sirdar called Indie. It's very light and lofty with a thin thread wound around the loosely spun fibres. It's a 51% wool and 49 % acrylic mix and very soft. The colours in this shade Prairie #155 range from aqua blue, taupe, brown and green. The recommended needle size is 12mm (US17) but I'm using size 10 mm circulars for a tighter fabric.

I'm using moss stitch here which seems to work okay with the colour sequences. More pictures to come soon of the finished item...
