June Gloom

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness. ~John Steinbeck

Years ago, the British Hubby and I lived in Southern California. That was our first experience with June Gloom, cooler temperatures and overcast skies. Sometimes in the PNW, we have a version of this with cloud cover that burns off by the afternoon. It can create some chilly mornings. Naturally, it seems fitting the Malabrigo Junkie group is using Grey for this month’s color along. Shockingly, I had a wip that will work (I know you’re not surprised).  Here’s my April Showers using Malabrigo Lace Superwash in Plomo. This is the third or fourth Curl I’ve made. The pattern is Argent by Hunter Hammersen. These scarf/shawls/wraps can be worn so many different ways. And they are interesting to knit. My last two hat patterns were also by Hunter Hammersen. Her patterns are just a delight to knit.


I just started the second skein. My biggest challenge with this wip will be trying to use all the yarn without running out. This yarn was discontinued so I’m unlikely to find any more.


It’s just the right size for an Ernie cape! His super power is snuggling.
