New Design In Progress

I was pulling together some spring and summer proposals a few weeks ago and fell in love with Pebbles from Classic Elite (on Rav). It is one of few cotton yarns that does not bother my hands. I am a semi-tight knitter and it seems when I work with cottons which have little give in the yarn that I get cramping on the back of my left hand. But there is enough nylon content in Pebbles that along with the spin used to give it texture it has more give than your traditional cotton yarns (but not as much as Fixation which causes gauge nightmares). I’m working with one of the new colors for this year called Blue Canoe. It makes me think of the land of 10,000 lakes :-)

Forgive me if I’m absent from the blog more now that the photographic week is over. I’ll just be in my corner knitting at 5.5 sts/in on a plus sized sweater… ;-)
