Denim – never gets tired.

LInda Lencovic inspiration, ISLINGTON - British BFL/Silk, Kettle Yarn Co., Waterlily

As most of you have already seen, I’ve started a Waterlily knit-a-long on the Kettle Yarn Co. group page for all of us casting on. I thought it would be fun to share our progress and see all the different versions in one place, so please come over and say hello if you are starting yours soon!

Here is mine at the moment shown in the most ideal knitting location:

The hue is the exact shade of a chambray shirt I had years ago that I love and wore until it was falling apart! It is destined to become something special for me and I am looking for just the right knit for it already.

Here are a few maybes for spring knitting that would make for amazing staples that I’d wear forever:

Anyone have some other suggestions? Please share!
