I unpacked my new yarn from The Loop in Halifax, only to pack it up again to head to the beach for a long weekend. What can I say? (I will be staying put for awhile… well, a few weeks, at least). The Schulana Sojabama first caught my eye when I saw Mimi’s Wyvern Wrap (Ravelry link), and it didn’t take much for her to talk me into it when I visited her shop. I did go in with a plan, however… the yarn was perfect for the Pintuck Tee that I had added to my queue only a week before…
The bamboo/soy blend is going to be perfect for this summer tee. I am thinking about modifying the sleeves on this one, but it all depends on how much yarn I have left. The yarn appears to be a great gray, but if you look a little closer in natural light, it is actually quite multi-tonal: lavender, blue, and maybe a little pink too. Quite lovely.

It’s a small gauge knit in the round – worked on size 3 needles with hundreds of stitches per round. Perfect kind of knitting for lazy days at the beach ~ well, at the beach house, as I only venture to the actual beach after the sun sets and there is smaller risk of my skin turning red
Every year, we head over to Assateague Island to see the wild ponies.
This year, we had a pretty close encounter.
