Sometimes you find a pattern that, when coupled with the most delicious yarn available, becomes an irresistible part of your day. After all the spew of what is oddly socially acceptable has receded it becomes that one thing, above all others, that you look forward to most. 15 minutes a day with this particular project makes all other projects momentarily mundane.
Pattern: Lacy Baktus
Yarn: Handmaiden Camelspin, 1 skein
Needle: Addi Turbo 3
Any time of day, it's a treat. Enjoy it with a gentle brew of tulsi tea or a swift shot of tequila. Either way, it will ease the spirit.
Fall is officially here: I heard leaf blowers this morning and saw quite a few fallen leaves collected in small piles. I love this weather: it's the beginning of sweater-wearing season. This one has been on the needles all summer, is finally seamed (not in this picture but you can see it in the shop) and now awaits buttons. The colors says Fall and the yarn says yummy and I can't wait to wear this cozy cardi.
Knitknackers made this sweater as a summer KAL (nothing like getting ready for Fall & Winter during those lazy summer days!) and you'll probably see many of us wearing this beauty around town in various iterations of yarn and color choice. It was great fun to knit I know some of us have made more than one and will make another in a different yarn/color. The yarn choices are abundant: many of us used Misti Tonos Chunky, but it's equally beautiful in Debbie Bliss Donegal Tweed Chunky (yarn used in original), Araucania Azapa and more.
Pattern: Drop Collar Cabled Jacket by Debbie Bliss (download pattern here)
Yarn: Misti Tonos Chunky in Dark Salmon
Needles: size 10 (pattern called for 10 & 10.5, I used 10 for the whole pattern due to my loose hand)
The end of summer brought these Tagua nut beauties into the shop so now I can finally put buttons on this cardi and call it a day.
