2nd Time Cotton, Zara

Hello Everyone!

Rachel-Marie here at the Kitchen Kettle LYS, enjoying the beautiful country atmosphere. I'm drooling over all of the yarn Wendy has stocked here! Like this "2nd Time Cotton" by Knit One Crochet Too.

LYS Owner, Wendy just finished her "Four Quarters Pullover" by Pam Allen. The pattern is from "Simple Style", an Ann Budd book. The yarn she used is Zara. We carry both the yarn and the book at both of our locations.

I have to admit that the Zara yarn looks stunning when knit up. The plain balls of yarn don't look like much at first, but once you squish a Zara swatch you will be instantly smitten. I want to knit everything in Zara now... if only. I have a feeling once Wendy's sweater is replaced with a new sample she will be living in that luxurious garment!
