my little college
Soon, I will have some updated knitting news. I completed my 13th pair of socks in 13 months, and I am taking the double 13s as a signal to cool it with the socks for a little while. 9 of those pairs were made for someone besides me, so I may have reached saturation point with the gifting of socks. Rebecca gave me absolutely GORGEOUS camel hair (yes! camel hair) yarn in a merlot-y color for my birthday so I am excitedly knitting up a scarf with it. Apparently it blooms during the washing process. Blooms! And becomes like cashmere.
Cashmere is a good summer fiber, right? Humidity be damned!
It is currently 87 F, 71% humidity in Northampton - with a heat index of 97 F.
I can safely say that you may want to wait on the camel scarf. ;)
