in the meantime…

So after the last post I ordered some Yarn.  But it looks like it’s gonna take a while… so while I impatiently patiently await the goodness I’ve decided to test knit the pattern with some other yarn I happen to have in the stash.  Some gorgeous silk/cashmere blend by Knit One Crochet Too called Richesse et Soile, sadly it’s discontinued.


It’s so soft it makes Socks that Rock feel like Brillo! I bought it on sale right before Handknits in Englewood closed.  I’m using size 6 needles and it’s coming out beautifully.  I thought at first it wasn’t "airy" enough, but when it’s done and blocked I have a feeling this is going to the top of my finish shawls.  It’s just SO SOFT.

Speaking of shawls, presenting the unblocked Birch.


A model shot… thanks to my roomate for the camera work!  She says I’m the best knitter/model and not the other way around ;-)


And a long finished Clapotis I made back in May!  So I’m a bit late posting these pictures but better late than never.


Yarn: Noro Silk Garden (about 7 balls!)
Needles: Size 8 straights
Thoughts: Pattern was so simple and yet satisfying.  I took this puppy on the train and bus with me.

it’s now time for Michael Scoffield.
