Actually Finished

I talk about finishing my Find Your Fade Shawl

Actually Working

I talk about the things that are currently on my needles including the Ravello Sweater

I talk about Flyway Twist

I review  Manos Del Uruguay Milo, which was provided by Fairmount Fibers

 Milo blends merino wool with fine linen for a yarn that is simultaneously rustic and elegant.  The linen retains its natural color through the dye process, giving a heathered effect.  It also lightens the yarn and gives the knitted fabric excellent drape.
