oh yes, still waiting for more selkie
, so i can finish st.ciaran
in the meantime, i've been kanoodling around with a couple of st*rmore designs that have been calling to me for ages.
first we have grapevine
(being inspired my mem's
shetland dk version), using limpet
in 2ply. the 2ply is giving a lovely lightweight fabric, and the back is measuring 21", perfect :-) now have to wait for more yarn to arrive in the mail, as i was only playing with leftovers.
next up, st.brigid
. the 3ply selkie was originally meant for st.brigid, but the amendment for the small size from vy has a tighter gauge than the original sweater in aran knitting. living in florida, i don't need an even warmer sweater, so started playing around with some leftover 2ply in lapwing
. this color is just spectacular.
since i'd rather have a cardigan than a pullover, here are my 2 options for the fronts: the one in lapwing has the 2 smaller cables and 2 braids, with the thought that the center cable will look like the main cable cut in half. the second one in sundew (ran out of lapwing) has the main cable flanked by 2 braids. i'm leaning towards the second, as i love the large cable, also the first option has the middle braid coming straight up the middle of my boob, not what i need to accentuate ;-)
all opinions will be greatly appreciated!
anonymous, madrona is the madrona fiber arts retreat. truly wonderful.
