I've been designing a sweater for one of my longest and dearest friends. Her and her husband are expecting their first baby. A little prince named Eli!! This yarn is so nice to knit with. A cotton linen blend. Perfect for the California falls that little Eli will be adventuring in as a wee little newborn.
A bit about my opinion on cotton yarn... I can't stand it! Let's just get right to the point! As much as I'd like to enjoy a cotton tunic or tank, it's just not pleasant to work with. The final garment stretches out after wearing a few short hours and never quite looks the same again. Well, add a little linen to the party and all of a sudden I'm a fan!! The addition of linen adds structure and texture and some sophistication. Good job linen! Way to share some of your awesomeness with cotton!!
I'd love to read your relationship with cotton! Is it as bad as mine? Do you like cotton better after a little swing around the dance floor with linen? What projects do you use for a cotton or cotton blend yarn?
