Knitting in the middle of a hot and humid Texas summer is not always pleasurable, but small projects make it tolerable and have allowed me to continue knitting through my stash.
I’ve been wanting to use a lovely merino yarn that I bought when visiting Germany. This yarn is enriched with aloe vera and jojoba. What could possibly be better?!
The yarn is by Zitrón. I had the pleasure of visiting with the owner of the company. Zitrón is a family-owned business dedicated to making yarn especially for hand knitting. You can read more about it here.
The pattern came from Purlbee with minor modifications for the right gauge.
I have enough of this purple-black-gray yarn for another small project. Perhaps a quick beanie to match?
