As Sally mentioned, I stumbled onto the Window to my Soul summer cardigan and thought it looked both cute and flattering. I, too, had some Madelinetosh in stash, BUT it is also in the color Cousteau. I just thought that was too matchy matchy!! Plus, I have 6 very consistent skeins and saw me making something bigger with it.
So, off to the Yarnery for me! I purchased some Neighborhood Fiber Co. Rustic Fingering in the color Gwynn Oak. Oh my. This color is OVER THE TOP and I love it!!
And here is the best part: I don’t care. I don’t care that my increases look like crap, I don’t care that the yarn is stripey, I don’t care if the skeins match perfectly. It is FREEING! I can just knit a long without a care in the world, especially since Surly shared her smocking tip!
I also have an FO. I made a small shawlette out of the Shiny Penny (Grinning Gargoyle Seda Sock) that I bought at Yarnover this spring. The pattern is called Cinnamon Stone by verybusymonkey. I loved the ornate center wedge:
It was fun to knit and finished up quickly. Again, kind of an autumnal look for this time of year, but…
Hope you are enjoying spring/summer so far. Our weather has alternated between gorgeous and torrential downpours. All better than polar vortex!!
