It's going to be a very long summer. It's not even the end of June and I've already got a fairly bad case of fall fever.

Have you tried Knit Picks' new yarn, Heatherly?
I'm knitting with "Butter" and it's wonderful. The yarn is mostly acrylic but looks and feels more like cotton. There's none of that shininess that acrylics so often have and the yarn is incredibly soft. The knitted fabric feels like my old, favorite pair of jeans. It has great stitch definition and, ahem, handles frogging and being reknit mutliple times quite well. And, it comes in both worsted and DK weights.
I am finding the yarn to be a tiny bit splitty but that could be because I'm using very sharp needles and reading while I knit. That may have something to do with all the frogging I've had to do too. Despite my troubles, I can't wait to add all the other colors of this line to my stash.
And yes, I am once again knitting pool-side. I'm so glad we fiinally got the pool open again.
I'm not the only one who likes to float!
