Summer knitting



Every year sometimes during the spring I switch from animal fibres to plan ones. Sometimes it is late, end of May, sometimes it is early, beginning of April. This year was an early one, I went to cotton for my latest project. The last years have given us warm springs, so there is that, and I also saw this yarn at a shop and just thought, I have to test this one. So I did, maybe not the best pattern to really test a yarn (a lot of knit togethers, purl ones as well!), but I do have to say, I really liked this yarn. Soft, with some give, maybe unusual in a 100% cotton. Nice colour variation and the pattern was fine too. The yarn is called Rowan Tetra cotton and the pattern is Lapsang. 

Also today is Valborg, the day to celebrate that spring is really here, with fires, songs and (in some places, especially if there are lots of young people around and uhm universitiy dominated, basically Lund or Uppsala) copious amounts of alcohol. Not that we do any of that, a bit of a chilly day today and the 15-yo old is just too well adjusted to go for that…. ( bit of sarcasm here, but on the whole she has her head screwed on in the right way, so I really can’t complain….).  But spring is here and that is of course a thing to be happy about!

Only misgiving, the sleeves are too long (well at least I would be slightly annoyed by them), but for a teenager they are apparently perfectly fine…. which is a good thing then!
