You may or may not know, but I have a pretty cool day job at Stitchcraft Marketing. I get to talk about yarn with the people who make it, and others in the fiber business. For a girl obsessed with all things yarn it’s a pretty sweet deal.
I’m sure you’ve probably all seen it. There’s a new fad in knitting: arm knitting. At first I thought this was a silly gimmick. You hold a few strands of bulky yarn together to make a scarf that doesn’t really look like much of anything. As far as I can tell it looks like limp string hanging around your neck–not my favorite look.
Then I remembered the bump of Bagsmith Big Stitch Merino sitting on the shelf behind my desk, and I thought…that’s it! They’ve been using the wrong yarn! Fifteen minutes later I was wearing this little cowl! That’s right, it only took me 15 minutes! After we took these photos of it I just kept wearing it! I have really sensitive skin and can only wear really fine merino yarns, and this cowl wasn’t itchy at all on my skin.
