I'm knitting a summer pullover sweater called Sunset Pullover (http://www.knitpicks.com/books/itemid_50359/books_display.aspx) in KnitPicks Vacation yarn (http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/yarn_Display.aspx?itemid=5420116). Hopefully, this sweater will come in handy at the beach or cool evenings/mornings. The lighter blue cotton part of the yarn is so soft that it feels like super soft worn denim. The darker blue part is foamy/squishy.

So basically, I'm making a sweatshirt! :lol:

I'm making the same sweater, but I'm using Knit Picks Get Away (http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/itemid_5420117/yarn_display.aspx/) in the color Jeans. I'm not really sure if I like the color too much, but the yarn is very soft.

Thank you...I really liked it too. Scarves are a great and easy way to use thick and thin yarn.

I only used thick & thin yarn once, when I was first learning to knit.

I used "Hip Hop" by Berroco, and made this hat:

I have some very slubby very thick and thin yarn that I love so much I only use little bits of it in different projects so I'll see it everywhere! Here's how I used it in my husband's vest: (it's the white yarn)
