I Got Mail

I came home and found this package in the mail today. This yarn was shipped from the UK, so I was very surprised that it arrived so quickly. I thought it was a buttery yellow color and it's actually more of an orange sherbet. I don't hate it, but I also don't know how much I like it. It's grown on me a little, but I'll knit up a swatch and decide after that.

On Deck

The Apres Surf Hoodie from the summer issue of Interweave Knits is my next project. I wanted something light and airy as a summer layering piece and this seemed to fit the bill. I ordered some Rowan Cashcotton in a light buttery yellow color. I think this will be a fun piece to knit up. I'm looking forward to working on some lace!
