First, Kozue . You might remember this from a few months back when I asked for input about which yarn to use (and then on facebook about which color). Well, I've been busy knitting other things and haven't gotten around to this; turns out this is one time my procrastination has paid off. We now have Malabrigo's Silkpaca laceweight (a plied 70% baby alpaca/30% silk blend with 420 yards per skein).
See what I mean? I'm glad I waited!
...and finally, we can't resist including the Linen Stitch Scarf . Our latest shipment of Claudia Handpaints Fingering offers up plenty of colorways. Here are a few to get you thinking about fall/winter neutral combinations - with just a pop of purple or blue perhaps?
|the pattern calls for three different skeins...which ones would you choose?|
In our next installment, we'll offer suggestions for cowls in three different weights - fingering, worsted and chunky...you can choose the project to match the amount of time you have to spend.
