I wanted a fabric and color that went with a lot of summer things, but wasn't beige. So it's kind of a denim blue. The yarn is a linen-viscose blend with a matte finish and a bit of texture.
With a pattern name like Seabrook and a yarn called Lago (Spanish for lake), I need a name that suggests water, but reflects my landlocked status. Mountain stream? Nolichucky? French Broad? Both of those are rivers in this area. Let's keep it simple: Blue Water.

The first KAL session was last evening with my Knitters-along and a few people who were just there to sit and knit. Everyone's Seabrook was getting off to a fine start. And we've all decided to stick with garter stitch rather than seed stitch. Too many purls!
This weekend coming up? The 3rd annual Asheville Yarn Crawl. I'll probably get to a few - mostly to make sure my fiber is nicely stocked - and maybe to check out Echoview Fiber Mill. Although kind of a schlep, I've been wanting to visit so perhaps now is the time.
