      Comments about Nashua Handknits Summer Garden:

      This yarn is lovely, and I'm sad it's being discontinued. I made the Abyssal Shawl with the Hollyhocks colorway, and I couldn't be more pleased with the result. It's soft, has wonderful drape before and after blocking, and is warm without being too much so.

      Definitely going to splurge on more before it's all gone.

      Comments about Nashua Handknits Summer Garden:

      I knitted the Gemini Cardigan fron Fall Interweave Knits. I had made the sweater in a wool blend and wanted something lightweight for spring and summer. The sweater had a raglan shoulder so I added yo eyelets along both sides of the raglan giving a lighter, lacy look.
      I really like the result. The finished sweater is light and cotton in the blend makes the finished fabric a bit softer than it would be if it was just linen.

            I have been making lots of dish and/or facecloths with this yarn. I love mine in the kitchen. Only complaint is that some of the dye is washing out. I assume that this will decrease over time. Color remains fine. The high linen content allows the cloths to dry quickly. Buying more for my stash.
