I recently received a pretty bag of yarn in the mail, some organic cotton from Appalachian Baby. This is another review opportunity, and I got to choose my color palette of the 3-skein U.S. Organic Cotton set. I chose Indigo, Doe, and Natural.
I had a heck of a time choosing a pattern. The yarn would be perfect for baby items, but I don’t have any babies in my life, so I finally chose a cowl pattern that’s been in my queue for months, Diamonds in the Rough. I’m going to modify it a bit to add stripes. I had some quiet time yesterday, so I took the opportunity to cast on. It calls for a provisional cast on, and it’s been so long since I crocheted that it took me a while to remember how to hold the hook and make stitches! But I figured it out and I’ve made a good little start. (The blue is the provisional cast-on.)
It’ll be nice to have some cool cotton to balance out the wool in my other projects!
That’s pretty yarn! I look forward to seeing your progress on the cowl.
Oh, that looks so nice! I love the texture of seed stitch so I might have to give this pattern a look. 🙂
I find seed stitch so soothing, for some reason!
This is going to be stunning! I’m looking forward to watching your progress
