wool + linen

I'm putting my p.s. at the beginning of this post, so you won't miss it.

p.s. Oh, if you haven't seen it yet...exciting news! Today The Purl Bee blog has featured Vanessa! And, as if that weren't enough cause for joy, they are offering the Kusha Kusha scarf pattern free right here.

In charcoal. If there's anything that might make this winter hating squirrel long for a chill in the air, it's the idea of wearing something knit from this gorgeous yarn, which knits up dry, soft and weightless (I did swatch). It's Kit #70 from Habu, the lamb wool linen jacket.

I just found out the other day that Alison (who has unwittingly become my official charcoal enabler and muse) will be knitting the same jacket, in the same colorway, which just goes to show you that great minds do think alike.

Okay, then, I think I'm set for a couple months in the yarn department. (A couple months. That's pretty funny.)

My aunt in London just 'commissioned' one from me :)

Can't wait to see your progress!
