I have been happily knitting away for most of the day on my new project: “Good Mood Shawlette”. I am knitting it for my friend Bassy. It is hard to believe I will see her in a little over a week. I can hardly wait!
She is a tiny Lady, and yes, I mean Lady. Bassy will be staying in Yerushalayim, where it get cold in the evening even in the Summer so she will be able to enjoy the little shawl.
I love the yarn I am using for it. It is Bambi, by PennyRose Yarns. A wonderful blend of bamboo and superwash merino with just a little of nylon in it. This particular blend of fibers is perfect for Summer knitting. The bamboo gives the wonderful drape to the yarn, but wool keeps it from loosing its shape. And the colors are just perfect. Yarnarian has never disappointed me with her yarn, and I have quite a collection of it. And so far I have never found a knot in it.
