This is a little piece of Three Rivers, CA, where we stayed on vacation. I found both the yarn and the “Morning Surf” pattern in a little yarn shop close to our campground called Creekside Yarns. I say little, but as yarn shops go, it is loaded with every brand I’ve ever heard of or yearned for. I could have spent the day (previous such experiences have led my family and friends to call them “yawn” shops.) However, I saw the look of fear in my children’s eyes as we pulled in, and I was on a budget anyway, so I just stayed long enough to purchase a few small traveling projects and chat with the lovely Beate as she wound a skein for me and printed up some patterns from Ravelry for me.
This Araucania yarn is spun from sugar cane and is so silky smooth I felt rich just knitting it. But it only took one skein to make this pattern, which is great because I’m not rich. 🙂 The pattern was repetitious but all the wrapping kept it fun through a Closer marathon.
