Day 9: What fiber or yarn do you love working with?

Mostly I love bamboo, but merino wool is just LOVELY.

I am currently in love with Bold Bamboo from Bendigo Woollen Mills in Australia.


It’s 60% Bamboo and 40% Wool, and it’s machine washable.
Each ball is 7 ounces and 437 yards.

Day 10: Do you have a favorite pattern or designer?

I love a lot of designs by Tin Can Knits, Nancy Whitman, and Stephen West.

I found out through my love of some of Nancy Whitman’s designs, that I need not stay away from fingering weight patterns. With the proper application of math- I can turn a shawl that I love into a blanket that I love (which I’m in the process of doing with the Miter-y Blanket).
