I love cotton, really, I do. Smooth sheets, comfy Ts, a crisp shift ~ but I don't love knitting cotton. Or, maybe it's just that I prefer knitting wool. Here in the soggy South, no knitted tank is going to be cool enough for me. And yet, here I sit, wearing Smooch. This I knit last summer, and this I do love. Maybe the sproinginess of Rowan ASC (and its American sister, Lion Brand Cotton-Ease) make for an exception. I love the new Sitcom Chic, too. But if you look at my Stitches to Go gallery, I've posted yet more cotton to move out into the world. I dunno. I bought those yarns wanting to knit with them, but it hasn't happened. I've yet to make a ChicKami. I think maybe I find the winter designs more compelling, and imagine myself wearing them more. I certainly have a whole pile of them lined up in my imaginary to-be-knit queue!
And yet, yet again. Didja notice what's joined the WIP list? Stephanie's Bad Penny, which I am knitting in, you guessed it, cotton. I ordered this Rainbow stuff back in the late spring, before I came to terms with my native fiber. And it's a fun knit, actually, slipping right along the Addi. Guess this raglan idea grabbed me after the Sitcom. While I want to make Agatha with the Linen Drape, while I am working on my Charlotte, I decided I'd like a simple knit to alternate with. Go figure. A woman's prerogative . . .
Hey, we're heading for the hills, for a recon with my 10-year-old goddaughter, Kathryn, and her family. So if you want to help me destash, and you don't get a reply, it's because I'm computerless. Will return (and reply) on Sunday ~ have a great weekend!
