I decided I wanted to take another stab at a linen yarn project. A couple years back, I made the Saco Stripes tank top out of Quince and Co. Sparrow, and despite knitting the smallest size, it was way too big on me. So I gifted it off to my sister (with sadness–I really wanted it to fit).
This time around, I’m knitting with Quince and Co.’s Kestrel yarn, and absolutely loving the way it looks and feels. Talk about knitting up quick, too. This will eventually be a tshirt called Flex by Heidi Kirrmaier. I love the interesting construction and thought the long lengths of stockinette would be easy knitting when my mind is distracted.
Eventually, I want to knit the Hamlin Peak sweater by Pam Allen in a lighter colorway of kestrel, too. I will wait to see how the finishing product on this tshirt looks on me, and what happens to the yarn after blocking.
Are you into knitting with linen? What projects?
