Sally and I are taking part in a mini-knitalong.  We are both starting Snowbird by Heidi Kirrmaier.  We love Heidi’s designs (such as Summer Solstice and Vitamin D) and this one is no exception.

I am knitting with the most wonderful yarn I have used in ages.  LOVE it.  Acadia by The Fibre Company: 60% merino, 20% silk, 20% alpaca.  Wow.  What a combination.  Sally used it for her Summer Surly.

This is truly fabulous yarn.  I love the feel, I love the nubs, I love the color.  And Sally gave it to me out of her stash!  Yay for me!!  She thought it would be too close to her Summer Solstice to make another sweater with it.

Yep.  That’s all I have done so far — LOTS more to go!

Sally – feel free to add a picture of your Snowbird.  It will be a slow knit, but I hope it will be very wearable when done.
