Yep, the Tilli Tomas Elsie yarn is 33% milk protein. I’m afraid I know nothing about fiber made from milk protein, nor have I ever had or knit with any before. To me the yarn looks like a silk wool blend.
I did find an interesting article about milk fiber, here.
And no, I did not think it was a coincidence that this yarn is called Elsie!
Yep, the 10-day forecast shows thunderstorms for the next ten days (today is just all-over grey and rainy). That’s typical for this area. It can be hot and sunny all day, but more often than not you can count on a late afternoon-early evening thunderstorm to roll through. We’ve been lucky so far this spring in that it hasn’t been too hot, but I’m sure we’ll be hitting 90 and beyond all too soon. I am not looking forward to that. Not a fan of hot weather.
I’m knitting along and hope to be starting on Chart F tonight or tomorrow. Woo!
I’ve used up two 370-yard skeins and have just started the third skein.
