30 Day Knitting Challenge Day 9: What fiber or yarn do you love working with?
Cormo for life. I love spinning cormo, I love knitting with the resulting yarn, and I love how springy and soft the resulting knitted object is. I’ve been meaning to try a commercial (or small batch) cormo yarn, like Elsawool. The white part of my Blue Palm Cardi is cormo that I spun. I also blended it with blue BFL to get the different shades of blue in the yoke.
I also really love knitting with Stonehenge Fiber’s Shepherd’s Wool. Once again, it’s soft and springy. I have two bags (10 skeins?) of worsted in the Granite colorway waiting to become another Exeter. I discovered Shepherd’s Wool at Fibre Space, my favorite not-exactly local LYS, and got 2 skeins that I ended up using to make hats, including this Star Crossed Slouchy Beret (https://www.yarncanada.ca/products/free-pattern-star-crossed-slouchy-beret-exclusive-to-yarncanada-ca.html).
