I wanted to thank anyone who bought Captiva Wrap over the last few weeks , donations from the sales came to $154 which I was very happy to send to MSF this morning. I am very glad to be able to send a little more.
I seem to be juggling a lot of different projects at the moment, all at different stages. I send off another secret project last week, however I think I might start a new version of it for myself with some cascade eco + I have here from last year. It is a lovely deep purple, it would be wonderful for everyday wear but I think too dark to photograph well. I wish I got more time to knit for myself, I am almost afraid to wear anything I do finish on the off chance that I might need it for display! I think that it’s about time my knits got a bit more wearing.
Before Christmas I finished a lightweight sweater for my sister. She recently returned to office work and was looking for a stylish lightweight top for everyday wear. I know that she loves turquoise and I found the most perfect shade of Turquoise in Cascade Heritage sock yarn.
I know it is knit in sock yarn…BUT it is at a loose gauge (for lovely stretch and drape) and the 36 inch size takes just under 3 skeins. Not a bad price for a new sweater!
It is knit in one piece (body knit from the hem up), with set-in sleeves knit from the top down in the round after the body if finished. Lots of fun and not too complex so a good one for knitting on the go.
It will be a couple more weeks before we finish the final layout but it has been tech edited so it is getting close to being ready to release.
