I started this blog post knowing I wanted to post something about Linen. In stock at Apple Yarns is an organic linen yarn; Sparrow by Quince. Love it! We have had the chance to see it in sweaters, tanks and even a washcloth and it always impresses.
So I was doing my "google" research and discovered this article in Country Living and it says it all and the pictures are pretty too.
My favorite Sparrow summer sweater pattern is, Nothched Hem Tank Top by Purl Soho
My favorite Christmas gift idea is washcloths with a wonderful soap. I am thinking of doing these in a gradient of colors and if I get my act together I might even learn to make soap.
June 25th through 28th we will be celebrating our Kickoff to the holidays with FREE washcloth patterns and classes on lace knitting with Sparrow.
Flax is grown mainly for its fiber and Canada is the largest producer.
