I haven’t touched my Dusk Into Twilight Shawl by Rosemary Hill since we last recorded. I’m using Two Ewes Fiber Adventures Replenish Rambouillet fingering dyed by Kelly in three colors, Bourbon and Suede, Falling Leaves, and Aquamarine.
I’m knitting on my John O Groats socks as we record. Using Yarns From the Plain sock yarn.
We talked so much in the last episode I forgot to mention that I cast on a pullover called Isle au Haut by Beatrice Perron Dahlen. I’m using Imperial Yarn Columbia which is an aran weight in the color Juniper Green. The yarn has lots of knots. About 10-15 per skein. Really surprising that the company thought this was okay. Maybe this is why the yarn was on sale! My bust is 40” and the finished size choices were 42” or 46”. I decided to cast on the smaller size but add eight stitches (2”) to get 4” of positive ease. We’ll see if my math works.
While at Stitches I made great progress on the Mariannes Cardigan that I am making as a tee. It is a pattern by Trine Bertelsen that combines crochet and knitting. I’ve split for the sleeves and I’m several inches down the body. The pattern calls for no waist shaping and I’m thinking about whether to do a little bit of increasing for a slight A-Line.
