Sublime organic cotton, must check out this yarn

knit goldfish cracker at I Like Lemons. The pattern is by Kimber Chapman and I also like her mini easter egg toys.

There are a couple good patterns in Berroco’s Cuzco & Peruvia booklet. I think I’d like a shorter version of Crotona.

    I’m using the sublime organic cotton to crochet a scarf right now… I love it! Its so soft and smooth. As a beginning I’m having a little trouble because the hook tends to go through the yarn quite often… also- its drying out my hands something fierce. But I’ll definitely be using it again for projects in the future.

    My scarf is here:

    Oooh, I’ve been coveting Sublime since I saw it at Churchmouse on Bainbridge last month. But I’m not allowing myself to stash more yarn right now….

    Crotona is cute- but yes, too long. The only thing I worry about with asymmetrical sweaters is how they might look when they are unbuttoned. I can’t wear a sweater that I have to keep buttoned- it’s a hot flash waiting to happen.
