A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

Crisp and smooth, not only was this 100% linen lace yarn a delight to work with

the fine-gauge and natural firmness of linen gave this yarn extra memory and structure.  It made shaping the finished Annis in the van a real breeze

…dried and ready to wear by the time I reached the destination 😀

Ideal for cool summer, the naturally-dyed 2-ply lace is quite easily one of the best linen yarns I’ve ever seen.  The yarn memory so you can shape the finished knit or crocheted fabric.

The beautiful 2-ply linen yarn isn’t shown on  Knit-Purl’s website.  You may have to give the store a call to see if it’s in stock or when it’s available.  When I made the trip to Portland earlier today on a lark,

I was sidetracked over West Hills

then irritated to be caught in Friday afternoon commuter traffic/accident on the freeway, and missed the shop by literally minutes!  I have completely forgotten about Friday afternoon communter traffic I was such a goofball and had no clue it closes at 6 p.m., not 8 p.m., on Friday night.  Oh well…the gorgeous shop sample will have to be mailed in instead…meanwhile, I’m squealed with delight to wear it around town for the weekend 😀  Sorry, Sandy!

Perhaps the universe is sending me a very clear message for summer knits…besides abundance of Noro Taiyo Sock Yarns already acquired in my stash, I would love to give Habu’s Linen Paper Cotton and Silk Stainless Steel (another lace-weight yarn that has a stainless steel core) a try using Gudrun Johnson’s Moch Cardi, one of many amazing designs off of The Shetland Trader (available for purchase at Knit-Purl.)

So whatcha planned for the summer? Interested in a Knit-Along?

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
