I'm sampling a new yarn called Twisp by HiKoo. It's primarily Pima cotton and combined with bamboo and hemp. I think it's going to be really nice for warm-weather knitting. I'm currently swatching a new shawl design with it and hope to have the pattern available before the end of the summer.

And slowly but surely I'm making progress on my hand spun yarn cardigan. The body is knit and I'm about a third of the way through the sleeves.

I'd love to know what's on your needles right now. You can leave a note on the website in the Pack Chat and Q+A section at the bottom of this post.
