Current Yarn

There has been some interest expressed in the yarn I am knitting with right now, so here it is: Custom Woolen Mills, Alberta, Canada. They are at www.customwoolenmills.com. This is a 2ply worsted weight wool, Sage Green Heather. It is a traditional mule-spun yarn, with a nice loft to it. It comes in 4 oz skeins, the way yarn used to come before the world lost its' collective mind and embraced the sterile, antiseptic and soulless metric system (am I ranting?). Anyway, I'm enjoying this yarn and am looking forward to the finished sweater which will feature simple cables, ribs and rice stitch. Now that I mention ribs and rice, I'm getting hungry, so if you'll excuse me...

Boy! A copy of that is definately a keeper, I hope you don't mind. Ummm...it just has the rich wool look. I hope I don't sound like a nut, or something, but I just love the feel of the skein of wool in my hands when I'm knitting. Enjoy your knitting Albert!

This is a good time for spinning in Alabama- soon it will be too hot to knit sweaters down there. Next fall you can knit up a sweater with your handspun.

I'm kind of ashamed of myself...I've been staring at this picture like an adolescent boy might stare at his first pornographic picture. I guess I really am obsessed with all things knitting.
