Summerspun is a beautiful yarn in a 50% Merino Wool and 50% Cotton blend. The yarn is made by twisting a printed cotton end and a melange wool end together, resulting in a wonderful subtle striping effect.So far I'm not getting a striping effect but I do like how the colours are coming out.
After an bit of knitting I took it out front in the shade. It's amazing how different the colours look.
What a beautiful day. I really wish we had a TV outside. NHL. Blue Jays. Nascar. It's been a busy afternoon. I also need a TV converter that I can talk to so that I don't need to take my hands off the needles.
There are three more hockey games this afternoon and this evening plus a baseball game tonight. And the Amazing Race finale. I'm not going to say who I want to win for fear of jinxing them. I'm figuring another 7-8 hours of knitting today. How much can I get done??
