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.
