The wages offriendship
I offered to knit a swatch for my friend Teresa who dyes yarn for a living. She sells mostly to weavers, but this tencell/bamboo combo is so lovely that the knitters have been asking how it works up. So I started just a basic swatch, but the the bustier insisted on becoming reality, so you saw the results in the post before last. I turned it over to her yesterday and she gave me two (!) skeins of my choice. I picked the mermaid blue.
And then, she asked if I would consider knittine an all bamboo swatch for her, and gave me this frabjous skein. Do you think it would work for a lace scarf? Simple, simple lace. It's worth a try. I have my Barbara Walker books out.
Teresa will be making kits to sell her yarn with my pattern. Cool! And good luck to her! She does all her sales at artisan's shows around the west. No etsy account yet. But if you see anything you adore, I'll let her know.
