What Have I Been Working On?
The yarn that we knit the one in Buena Vista out of are anything but easy care/washable. They have to be hand-washed and for most folks that is a pain in the sit-down-parts.
So, I got out some of my stash in the Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick to see if it would make up a comparable finished product. It does. I asked the shop to order in some fun colors as well as some manly and/or neutral ones. I took the one I had finished to shop for display with a sign "Coming Soon." Lo and behold, when the shop owner tried it on I realized that it had to be hers because she looks so good in that color. I am knitting another one for display as I tell you this. Also, of note, she is allergic to wool, however managed to wear this one around for quite a while (around her neck, not like pictured) and could not tell there was wool in it. Yay!
