Almost Completed...

Here's a great peak at the almost finished Colinette Art Sweater! I am making a large collar to frame the neckline. I really recommend this yarn. It is SO soft by hand, yet really sturdy (it's hard to break the yarn end by just pulling it!) So I think it will wash and wear really well for a long, long time. It also has a soft drape (not stiff like many worsted weight wools.)

You can find it at your local yarn shop OR order directly from the wool mill in Wales HERE.

While completing this, I am planning my next knitted garment. It will be from that lovely merino-mohair Fleece Artist "Merino Angel". The swatch is open and airy and light as a feather. I am thinking of a whisper light tunic... hmmm.

My knitting hours have been reduced so far this summer, lots of golf and sewing. I am sure most of you agree, it is a little more difficult to embrace knitting, especially with the merinos and silks and other warm woolies, when it is hot and humid outside. The hidden gem of summer knitting, is the surprise of finding on those first cold fall days, the summer-time merino knit that you tucked away in the cold section of your closet in anticipation of the inevitable cold spell that WILL return to our fabulous country! So keep tucking them away!
