Yummy Enough to Eat

Can a yarn be yummy enough to eat? I snagged the last skein of this berry silk/merino mix in Nancy Finn’s booth at Fabulous Fiber Fest 2004. It knits up like a dream. I have never knit with such an enjoyable yarn before. I hope Nancy will be there again this year.

I mixed the berry yarn with 2 skeins of its green/teal sibling and 3 skeins of Cascade 220. I started this sweater at family camp last month. Of course, I had to spend an afternoon at the nearby yarn store that arranges their yarn like a color palette. I made considerable progress on the sweater despite the long hours I have been putting in at work. I am using Jill Vosburg’s crystal cove sweater pattern. As usual, I couldn’t resist making a few changes.

On the sewing front, I made Iris’ Barbie an evening dress from some cotton batik that she picked out. I will post the pix next weekend.
