Staff Project: Simply Wool Docklight Sweater

I loved knitting with the springy, wooly goodness of Simply Wool for the first time! I'm so used to Wool of the Andes Superwash as my go-to worsted weight yarn but I'm truely a convert to our new line. I always reach for natural, undyed wools before other colors and I love all the browns and greys in these happy hanks. Simply Wool has all the squish of my favorite wools without the scratchiness! Each stitch felt so good that I actually regret how quickly this project worked up! In case you weren't sure, I want to re-emphasize that I knit a worsted wool sweater in Portland during one of our hottest summers and loved every minute. Seriously. Get thee to some Simply Wool, you won't regret it.
