— I discovered that my beloved friend Meg must have been weaving in the ends on her Big Rubble just as I was writing that post about the pattern. I WANT that sweater. I particularly love the single, mustard-colored pocket Meg added.
— In response to my post about Harpa, Cirilia Rose has suggested she might do a video tutorial about the two-handed colorwork method. Send encouraging vibes her direction, please.
— I’ve started a new Pinterest board specifically for my aforementioned aran fixation, called aran sweaters forever. For anyone else who can’t get enough.
— Turns out the lovely MJK and I both have the State Street Cowl pattern (referenced here) waiting patiently for our attention. Anyone else fancy a knitalong? I’m thinking perhaps we could cast on January 1st?
— Meanwhile, I’m casting on another cowl, using my two treasured skeins of indigo-dyed Sincere Sheep Luminous, held double. I can’t stop caressing my swatch. I’ll have details and a pattern coming up very soon.
Yes- Let’s do the knitalong!
You and me, for sure.
I like the ribbing on that sweater. I might try the cowl, but I doubt I could keep up! It’s taken me a month to knit half a brioche scarf.
This week’s focus is Fiona Ellis and cable design. She’s also doing a free class on cabled necklines that will be available in January.
Cabled necklines? I’ll be curious to see what that’s about.
But c’mon, KB, do the cowl with us in Jan.
Hmmmmmmmmaaaaaybe. Do you have your yarn picked out? I like that “Twig” color in the Puffin.
I’ve got “Frank’s Plum.”
I can’t stop looking at the State Street Cowl. I just may have to join you in the KAL.
It’ll be the first thing I’ve made myself in a long, long time!
All the more reason, then.
I’m getting so excited for the knitalong I might have trouble refraining from premature cast-on.
