Go ahead, call me a pumpkin head!
So I resumed Knitting after 9/11. There has been a long learning curve. (yet there has been learning and a curve!)
I realized today that so much of what I have knit for myself is itchy.
No amount of conditioner will do. I have the hives to prove it.
So here's to my next step in Knitting. There will be no wools. No lushous alpacas, no incredible angoras, gasp, even merinos..
Only my feet and hands can handle the softest of wools.
I'm so jealous of all of you. Yet, if this is my knitting cross to bear, so be it.
Today I found some Great Adirondack Grenada in Cotton and Rayon. It is so soft.
So this pumkin head has finally figured it out. Im genetically programmed to react to wools.
I live in a climate that is so dry in winter we are itchy even without wools to irritate us.
I think I am going to have a yarn sale . Right here on the blog. I'll call it the Smashing Pumpkin sale!
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
