I have found my yarn…really it should be stash yarn because, as I have already pointed out, the stash is growing at an alarming rate. I feel though, that if I purchase yarn for this project and immediately start it, it doesn’t add to my stash. So the stash has lost this battle, right?
It’s Organik by the Fiber Company, an amazing blend of organic merino, baby alpaca and silk.
Anyways, since Stephanie stole my yarn from Knit Happens and is using it for another adorable pattern, I had to track it down online and scrape together what was left at Knit Happens in the hope that this will be enough for the hoodie. (Knit Happens still has it in a million other colors, of course, but I had to have this one. Go get it while it is there!) While the dye lots won’t match for sure, I am going to alternate the two in the hopes of hiding it. I hope to receive my yarn by this weekend and swatch. I leave for Montana on Tuesday so you will have a guest blogger next week (more on this soon) to get us started on the Knitalong. If you have your yarn, swatch away and feel free to send me links to your photos. I will put them up on the blog.
