2KCBWDAY1.....My thoughts on a favorite yarn and a not so favorite
(Stay with me here...the image is from P. Allen Smith's site. What a cute trowel holder! eh? I may just have to find an old croc around here....)
Okay, now to stay on task...I am joining so many blogger knitters this week on the same topics each day. Today: a yarn you love or hate and why.
Well, after touching all my FO's around here, I have to say my favorite yarns are Great Adirondack Yarn Company's yarns in cotton blends. I just can't wear wools you know, except on my feet and hands. What I really love in this Chicagoland area, during so many cold months is a warm scarf, hat or shawl. THe kind that lies right on your bare skin and hides you from the wicked winds.
Now that I mentioned Chicagoland, I have to say that Zach told us that term made his roommates laugh. He said people from other areas find the term Chicagoland funny. We say it all the time. As in: We in the Chicagoland area, are freezing our butts off this March day.
Chicagoland area includes the burbs basically, that surround chicago on all sides but the east side. (that would be the Great Lake Michigan!)
I guess I've never heard about New York Land or Detroitland, or St Paulland. So It is kind of odd that we have coined the phrase here.
So bye for now from Chicagoland....
