Rain. We are having a week of heat mixed with clouds and quick/hard rain showers.
You know, the kind of hard sudden rain showers that have you running outside ripping all
of your three loads of washing off the line; you and all the washing are dripping wet; and then
the sun comes back out hot. Yeah, that.
I was lucky enough to be selected as a test knitter for the ever so gorgeous PRINCESS FIONA
by the talented Amy Miller. I am a wee bit behind (( ahem )) as the pattern has been live for a week (or two) and has gotten all of the attention that it so deserves. It is a mighty fun knit and a very comfortable wearing sweater indeed. I do believe its my favourite fitting knitted sweater !

Still nursing a bruised and very sore finger , my knitting is slow.
I chose the most delicious yarn for my sweater. It was my first time using the beautiful Swans Island Organic Merino Yarn ( and I might have ordered more already, oops). I am using two skeins only for my sweater! So there is awesome yardage, but the feel ? Oh my gosh. It is spun with a thread of
Alpaca, making it lightweight yet warm , and oh-so-soft. Like Cashmere soft. Amazing stuff, you've got to check out this yarn. They also sell beautiful wraps, scarves, and blankets !
