Summer Tees! Yarn Folk

In addition to Lemon Spritz, the 7th Annual Olive Knits 4Day KAL, summer tees are definitely in the air! Last Friday, Berroco revealed that for their summer makealong, and it's a return of the Tee Party! Announced in the most recent Knit Bits newsletter (are you signed up for Knit Bits??), you can knit any tee pattern (Berroco has lots, but as long as you're using a Berroco or partner (Lang, Lopi, Amano, Wool Addicts) yarn, any tee pattern is A-OK.)

Two key points:

1) Since you're welcome to use any pattern, as long as you're working with a Berroco or partner yarn, you could *totally* double-dip, and participate in TWO knitalongs with one project if you're a Lemon Spritz-er. Amano Chaski and Amano Awa are both on our list of suggested yarns, but we also think Remix Light, Modern Cotton DK, Spree, or Pima Soft are solid options. Which brings us to...

2) a reminder that we're always happy to facilitate drop shipping from Berroco for you! Whether it's one of the options for Lemon Spritz that we don't regularly stock, a color of Amano Chaski or Awa that we don't have in the shop, or yarn for a different tee altogether, just drop us a, and we'll send in an order that will arrive right to your door!

I never get quite as much knitting done as I think I will when I'm on hand for race support during my spouse's ultra running adventures, but I am making good progress on the lace body of my shop sample Lemon Spritz! Hoping to finish this week. Did I mention that there are only four rounds of knitting, plus the sleeve edging for the sleeves? 😂🙌🏻
