Whether or not we agree with it, spring is on the way. About a month or so back, I suffered a “knitting injury”. I had been knitting so much on a particular shawl (that I have since frogged!) that I gave myself a repetitive motion injury in my left thumb and wrist. But, I have to have yarn in my hands! No, now what?! I am now crocheting a cute cardigan in granny squares. I know, granny squares, really?! Yep! I am crocheting these out of Summer Sesame, two colors, and one color of Zinnia. Both are a cotton yarn and will be such a nice multi-seasonal cardigan.
Notice how all the granny squares are different in color? That’s the yarn that does that! I have guesstimated 8 skeins of Zinnia and 2-3 skeins each of two different color ways of Summer Sesame. I am not 100% sure on the Summer Sesame because I have now done just under a 1/3 of the squares and still have some of the original skeins left.
Another good yarn for this cardigan for the Spring-Summer-Fall months would be Unity or Unity Beyond. This is a wool/cotton/linen/bamboo blend, making the yarn a tad bit “heavier” feeling, until washed. Then it “lightens” up nicely!
