After many months of knitting with cotton yarn, it has been a pleasure indeed to knit with a yummy, soft merino. A few months ago, while visiting my local Michaels, I noticed the Lion Brand Superwash Merino Cashmere had been clearanced out. I grabbed the last 3 skeins and, boy am I glad I did.
I cast on for a cowl and at the time of this post, I'm quite a bit further than the picture shows. After I get it completed, I will be sure to post another picture. While knitting, I've noticed that my face itches, my lips tingle, etc...Signs of an allergic reaction. I've said before that I have a wool allergy. Some wool never bothers me while some can be pretty severe. The yarn is so soft and pleasureable to knit with that I just pressed through.
I have a very exciting business trip in my near future. I will tell all later.
