wheeeeee...

there's a new yarn at my favorite yarn shop...


ushuaia, from the spanish company katia,is a super-bulky, thick-and-thin yarn that is wildly fun...

not my usual style, this yarn, but the happy colors were calling out, "knit me!"

and so, that evening, I made a baby sweater...


at a gauge of 2 stitches per inch, 
it flew off the needles...

thus, the name...

wheeee

pattern will be available soon!

cotton with wool...

a new yarn has arrived at my favorite yarn store...

Geilsk
 bomuld (cotton) og (and) uld (wool)

had to give it a try...



though I am making a hat as a sample,
I do think a sweater is in order!





this yarn seems to be ideal 
for our coastal summers...
a lovely, light cotton fingering
tempered and warmed by the 
magic that is 
wool
