Julie Hoover’s Goode is for knitting not just once, not just twice, but at least three times! Originally designed in Linen Quill, then re-imagined in Cattail Silk, we delve in again, now with Spectrum Silk!

And impossible to not knit again with Spectrum Silk tempting us from its corner! Super soft with a very gentle shine, this yarn absorbs dye so thoroughly that each color is like a radiant gem. We used majestic Deep Teal, but choosing was the hardest part!
