From Sally — Riverine

Filed under: Updates — surly @ 12:05 pm

Yes, I just finished another project using Shibui yarns.  I can’t help it.  I love them.  Riverine was designed by Theresa Gaffey for Wearwithall Designs, which is part of The Yarnery — my favorite yarn store in Minnesota.

Riverine uses one skein each of Shibui’s Pebble, Cima, and Silk Cloud.  I used the color Imperial which showed a distinct lack of imagination on my part because that was the color used in one of The Yarnery’s samples.  I loved it though and it’s a color I didn’t already have.  (A feat in itself considering the size of my Shibui stash.)

Riverine is a great mindless knitting project once you get going.  Perfect TV or travel knitting and easy to make changes to if you’re so inclined.  (That is, you can easily alter the number of rows of the various yarns to suit your mood.)  I chose to follow the pattern fairly closely. My finished scarf is about 14 inches wide and 76 inches long.

I might even make another!  I could probably go find the yarn down in the yarn room.

The color is most true in the last photograph.

From the sublime to the ridiculous: I saw these adorable footlets on Ravelry and had to start a pair for fun. It’s even a free pattern! Susan’s knitting a pair as well and my daughter has already requested them in gray and pink. Meow.

In case anyone else gets tempted, we’ve started a mini-KAL in our Ravelry Group. We’re really enjoying getting to know many of you over there. Please stop by if you haven’t already!


  1. Love those kitty cat footlets! Great idea!

  2. I am so tempted to try those kitten socks.

    Also tempted by the three-yarn Riverine scarf. Neat concept!
