[SIZE=“1”]Is it sensible to wear wool in the summer? :ick:
[COLOR=“Navy”][ETA: sensible is probaly the wrong word to use here. wearing wool in the summer is surely NOT sensible, especially with california weather getting really hot!]
I don’t mean an actual sweater, unless you wear it when it’s a little chilly at night. I bought some Cascade 220 and was planning to knit a shrug or bolero (like the one skein wonder). Should I just buy a summery fiber (like cotton or maybe bamboo) and knit something else with the cascade?[/SIZE]
[COLOR=“Purple”][I]What other fibers are perfect for hot summer weather?[/I][/COLOR]
What’s a good cotton yarn? The only readily available cotton yarn I can get my hands on is Sugar and Cream and Lion Brand Cotton, and they seem more like yarns you would knit dishcloths with rather than for garments. Hmmm… now I’m thinking of frogging a tank I never actually got to finish. Well, I only ever did knit one side of it.
Has anyone tried Classic Elite Bam Boo? I bought some a few months back wanting to make this. It’s sooo pretty and shiny and soft I’m afraid to knit with it in case I mess it up! :pout:[/I]
