Beach Yarn

Typically, I am not a fan of cotton yarn. It snags and splits on my Knit Picks. But this Antuco 100% Cotton is soooooo fun to knit. You can find it here. It's a thick/thin type yarn. Once again, not liking the thick/thin but this just slides off the needle like butter. I'm using colorway 10 of pinks, taupes, orange, blue, greens.

Basically, picture the beach in your mind and those are the colors of this yarn. It's like someone at Antuco reached inside my little, overworked brain and pulled out this color combination. I bought this in Charleston at the yarn store there as a souvenir of my trip (beside the sunburn.)

It was begging for a simple lace shawl. I'm using a pattern from "Knitting to Go" by Kris Percival with size 11 circs
