Technically Not A Mishap

Technically this is not a mishap in my book, but we’re going to categorize it as one for today. Poor DH, he’s been after me for eons to knit this basic raglan top down sweater. Well, I spun the yarn… lots of yarn. A beautiful light gray Corriedale. It’s gorgeous and soft. At least to me it’s super soft. This is from a fine sheep from a super fine establishment that always sells out of fleeces. I was actually thinking of getting another one as it’s been fun to spin.

Well wouldn’t you know it too itchy for him – poor thing. He can’t help his sensitive skin. At least I found out in the collar. We tested cormo on him – too itchy. Say it ain’t so… he’s so, so sensitive on especially in the neck area,  he’s telling me it has to be cashmerino, which is fine, but there is a boat load of wool in the basement destined to be sweaters. Oh well. Right? Cheer me up folks.

  • Wait, are you saying that you *have* to go yarn shopping now? You can’t fool me; I’m not feeling sorry for you! 😉

    But, seriously, that yarn looks like it will make a lovely sweater for you. You did a gorgeous job with it!

  • You might also check out Malabrigo for him. So far it’s the only thing I can wear as a hat- doesn’t itch me at all. Thank goodness the rest of my body isn’t as sensitive!

  • Well, there’s always stash sales hehehe. I also can’t stand wool touching my bare skin most of the time, but I have no problems with the worsted yarns from 100purewool.com. They’ve just now come out with a fingering yarn too. These yarns are soft and I like the colors a lot.

    Cheers Eva

      How about wearing a turtleneck shirt under the sweater?
