Sweet Summer Knits {Blue Sky Worsted Cotton Yarn}

Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton Yarn{Blue Sky Alpacas worsted cotton yarn in Periwinkle, Graphite, Lemongrass, Aloe, Poppy and Lotus}

Summertime is perfect for getting that jump start on your holiday gift making, but sometimes you gotta take into consideration where you’ll be knitting.  Because there’s just some yarns that aren’t meant for sweltering heat unless you’re game plan involves a little felting. For instance, my in-process Pangolin Cowl in the Blue Sky Alpacas buttery Suri Merino is a project strictly designated for air-conditioned knitting.  And, maybe some Don’t be Tardy for the Wedding even though I probably shouldn’t admit that to you.

Blue Sky Alpacas worsted cotton yarn is one of the most popular sellers in the Home Made shop for good reason. This lofty cotton yarn is super soft and extremely versatile, making for perfect year round knitting. Plus, it’s 100% organic cotton so you don’t have to worry about any unfortunate wool allergies. Anyone would want to snuggle up with this yarn, so it’s a terrific choice for scarves, sweaters, baby gifts, blankets, shawls, and even dish towels. Okay, I hope you’re not snuggling with your dish towels but who knows? You might want to! No judgment. (:

With some fun new colors of the worsted cotton in the shop, I thought I’d share a few projects that could fit right in with your summer activities whether you’re poolside, at the beach, or cheering at the softball game.
