Daruma Yarn and Patterns

I was approached by the Japanese yarn company, Daruma Yarn, last year about making coupla designs.  How can someone pass up such opportunities?

I came up with 2 easy designs that used the squishy Daruma Genmou yarn which is DK weight, a pullover, Wadachi,  and a shawl, Minamo.

The yarn was such a pleasure to work with that I will definitely use it again in the future.  Perhaps knit myself the Wadachi sweater.  (I had to knit the sample in a much smaller size than myself, and the company got to keep the sample as we'd agreed :)

If you have not checked out their yarn, you should it's quite a fun yarn. It's slightly squiggly with a thread that runs through the center.
