Speak to me of Summer...

I'm one of those people who loves a nice Summer weight yarn... some cotton or linen... maybe even silk or bamboo. When I first started knitting, I knit with cotton. Cotton hats, cotton tee's... it took me a while to venture into wool. Right now, despite the many things I already have going, I've cast on for a light weight wrap sweater, something easy to throw on over a tank top. I'm using a yarn I fell in love with the moment I saw it. Linsey by Berroco. A lovely worsted weight cotton/linen blend. I'm knitting in "Shell" I love the texture of it, the tones in it, the way it drapes and best of all the way it feels while I'm knitting it. It just screams Summer and on a rainy day like today, with this crazy ol' cold I've managed to pick up... I need something, anything that screams... or even whispers Summer.
