This knitter tells us:
Here's what I've mostly been working on lately-- a houndstooth pattern scarf made from organic cotton. I ordered the pakucho stuff from elann and it's awesome! Though it's not as soft as I expected, it has a nice feel and I really like all the history behind it. Plus you can get really nice colors but they're all undyed! Whee!
There is nothing like a natural yarn. The possibilities are endless. . . and any pattern knit in a natural yarn seems to pop.
