Very excited about some new batches of warm weather yarn from knit picks. Comfy in fingering weight (that’s the dark purple one, called Blackberry), and Shine in sport weight (Wallaby and Platinum). It’s great to have cotton in such fine weights to play around with, opens up new possibilities for tanks and short sleeve sweaters. 

Cotton yarn can be tricky. Sounds like such a nice idea, all friendly and soft. But have you ever had cotton turn on you, part way through a project? You suddenly realize that it’s hurting your fingers, it squeaks on the needles, and somehow is making your hands sweat.

So far so good with the Comfy and Shine blends. And they’re both washable and affordable.
