Cass said I could enter!

topI wasn’t going to, but since she specifically said so…

Here’s my entry to the first Vegan Pal 2 contest:

My favorite vegan yarn is Cotton Classic by Tahki * Stacy Charles. So far I’ve made a hat and a top out of it and I’ll be making this year’s red scarf from it. I first found it in my lys looking for something for a tank for myself. The pattern called for silk, so I wanted something with some drape to it and in a color I would actually wear. This happened to be in the exact same pinky/lilac color shirt as I was wearing while I was standing there comparing yarns. It feels great and it’s really easy to knit with and comes in great colors. Plus I’m a big fan of cotton. It makes very clean stitches, but not as stiff or rough on the hands as Sugan N’ Cream.

hatAs an aside, I was surprised to find I don’t have a single picture of myself knitting. This seems unfathomable since there was definitely a long time where you would be hard pressed to look at me and not see knitting.

    Your yarn review sounds really great. It makes me wanna buy some of that yarn immediately. Unfortunately or should I say luckily I won’t be able to get any of it here.
    I love the hat and the top looks fabulous too! Very nice colors.
    Also, I really really wanted to say thank you for organizing Vegan Pal 2!

    Thanks! I love it too! It was supposed to be for a little kid, but I made the biggest size and it fits!
