Sally was thinking about summer knitting way back in the fall when she ordered many lovely summer yarns. My surprise favorite is Berroco Weekend DK, an acrylic/cotton blend with a sproingy texture. I am normally not an acrylic-lover, but Berroco seems to know what they are doing with it.
The colors caught my eye, the feel of the yarn got me thinking, and the sample that Ann knit sealed the deal.
I have begun thinking about kiddo sweaters, but this yarn is great for grown-person-sized stuff, too. I think each and every one of us needs at least a few easy-care cotton cardigans or comfy pullovers for this summer.
As an added bonus, this yarn is a screaming deal. Each plump skein contains 268 yards for just $6.75. I know. This appears to be a new yarn this summer, so there aren't too many patterns available from Berroco. But I have ideas!
How about a Summer Solstice from Heidi Kirrmaier?
