Posy - Purl Soho's Fabulous New Yarn!

A little while ago, Purl Soho asked if I wanted to play with their new yarn, Posy. I said yes, of course!
It's called Posy and it's a hand-dyed fingering weight yarn that is 75% superwash merino, 15% cashmere and 10% nylon. 318 yards come in a 100-gram hank. (It also comes in smaller hanks.)

I made one secret project out of it and the one you see above, which is a scarf from 101 Designer One-Skein Wonders. I've never made it, before, but it's a quick, fun little knit!

The scarf is actually designed for sport weight yarn, and Posy isn't quite that thick, but I would classify it as on the heavier end of fingering. The cashmere really gives it a nice hand, too. It would make a scrumptious baby sweater or hat.
