I'm back! (hopefully!)
Warning: links below are almost all Ravelry links.
What I've Finished:
Jill made the Cadwyn Bloomers by Kelly Menzies in a mustard Koigu color for her coworker's baby. Her Rav page here. She made almost all of the Farm Friends (Pasture Pals, Pen Pals, Fowl Friends) by Esther Braithwaite, the cow, sheep, chicken, pig and horse, out of leftover fingering weight yarns. Link to one of Jill's Rav pages here. She made another, and hopefully her last Purl Soho Garter Stitch Earflap Hat in the child size in Leading Men Fiber Arts Box Office in the Neon Pencil colorway, and a tiny bit of Gnarled Paw DK yarn in Pinky. She also made two different Love Owls by Susan B. Anderson, one in the large size for a friend's two-year-old, and one with the large size decorations, but in the smaller size for Starling. She used Madelinetosh Tosh Merino in the Paper colorway with accents of Bumblebirch Forage in Cranberry and Anzula Cricket DK in Toffee. Jill also finished a cropped pullover, Tin Roof by yamagara using Madelinetosh Merino Light in Grasshopper, Nassau Blue and Robin's Egg. Her Rav page here. Photos coming soon!
My Current Fix:
Jill is working on a pair of stockinette socks in Opal 4-ply in the cake pops colorway. She first did most of a leg with 60 stitches but had to rip it back and switch to 68 stitches. She is doing a secret test knit for Sara Elizabeth Kellner for an upcoming Rabbit Hole Knits book. She's using Paton's Classic Wool in Khaki and handspun yarn from fiber from Morro Fleece Works. Jill has started Ephemeris by Debra Gerhard out of Teal Torch Knits Sock in Good Til the Last Drop and Long Dog Yarn Bounce Sock in First Blush. She's hoping this mosaic shawl will work with these two colors. She first tried the yarns with Cathedral Grove by Romi Hill, but it wasn't a good yarn match.
What I'm Jonesing For:
Jill is looking at shawls as always. She's into Stella by Natalia Moreva, which is a semi-circular shawl with modular knit stars. She also likes the intarsia crescent shawl Number 10 by Lori Versaci, and Lilies by Andree Beddoe which using her "knitted embroidery" technique. Jill likes the colorwork Amor Propio Hat by Carolina Castillo. She also likes the Buddleia Blouse by Retro Claude and the Kiely Swoncho by Tamy Gore.
