During my summer in Alaska, I wrote Arabah, a simple shawl pattern. Ever since I finished the project, I find myself sporting the new shawl more often than not. Something about it makes me feel like Little Red Riding Hood. The yarn I used is a DK 100% Pima Cotton Yarn from Cloudborn. I was pleasantly surprised at how soft the yarn is, yet it never pilled or shed. It even holds its color vibrantly! It is by far the best cotton I have used to date, and something I intend to use on many more patterns in the future.
