Knitting with Frog Tree yarn


Finally, a moment to sit down and swatch some Frog Tree Picoboo yarn.  It's a pima cotton amd bamboo blend.  The Picoboo yarn has some sheen to it which I am drawn to and comes in these rich hues that are undescribable.  I've sketched a spring shell and I've swatched it.  I'm swaying back and forth as to which colorwork I want to incorporate into the shell.  This design will premier at TNNA, Columbus.  If you haven't heard of Frog Tree yarns, go to the link below.  It's a non-profit organization that supports the Bolivian women who hand knit the sample sweaters seen in yarn shops and dye the yarns.  It's a fabulous foundation and one that I will be donating 10% of my pattern proceeds to.

As always, I can't wait to see what you have come up with. The yarn is beautiful and what a great charity. I think I need to hire you or Cal to take my pictures for me. Your pictures are also so nice.
