Who doesn’t love a good cotton blend yarn? And at this time of year? Better a blend, than just cotton right now. What is this weather?! Only Pittsburgh would have us wearing autumn jackets, shorts, and rain boots all in the same week.
Cristina’s favorite yarn right now is Fiora. She’s working up her circular yoke (the March KAL) with Fiora, and who cannot forget that beautiful hat that Heather worked up with the Fiora earlier in the year?
This yarn is very versatile, and great for this time of year. With it not being too hot to work with, but still warm if you do want to work on a project for the colder months. I totally concur with Cristina’s pick of the month.
What’s your favorite yarn right now? Does it change with the weather or you a wool lover year round? Come in and check out all the cotton or show us your latest work.
See you soon!
