3 Reasons to Switch to Natural Fiber Clothing

These reasons made me start looking the tags on the clothes. I'm not perfect and you can still find some synthetic fibers among my clothes but I try to buy only natural fibers and even when that's not possible I read the tags to make sure the most of the garment is made from natural fibers.

So here are my reasons you should also switch to natural fiber clothing:

What Do You Do While Knitting?

I know, you are knitting, so you must concentrate on it. But when you are knitting a simple pattern that doesn't require all your attention what do you do?

I have see on the internet a lot of people reading while they knit. For me that's impossible, when I read I forget about everything around so knitting while reading is out of the question for me if I don't want to end with a messy project. On the other hand, doing nothing while knitting makes me feel a little bit nervous. 

What I like to do is watch movies and series. Lately, I've been watching an online series: "Gortimer Gibbon's Life on Normal Street". It's a series oriented for kids but in the same style as the Goonies or E.T. so it's great.

And you, what do you do while knitting?

Decisions and Test Knitting.

I want to add a collection of scarves to the shop and can't decide on the pattern, so for the next days I will be making patterns and samples like a mad woman.
I also started a new pair of socks, this ones for the boyfriend. It's the first time I'm using Drops Fabel yarn and I really like the outcome, it looks like a stranded pattern but without the mess of having to change colours. I'll show you the result when I finish them, until then I'll be knitting!

Have a nice weekend!
