A podcast about knitting and books I am reading from PEI, Canada.
Beach Day Cowl (in press) for Fleece and Harmony. I have people test knitting it for me now. Mine is in Fleece and Harmony’s Signature yarn using the company colours as for the large Beach Day Shawl: Night Without Stars, Linden Blossom, Take the Ferry, and Dandelion. I used a 6 mm (US 10) needle. I love how soft this yarn is when you use larger needles to knit with. The fabric is soft and fluffy. They have lamb’s wool in all their skeins. I find that really makes it soft for around your neck. Can you see my mistake? Obviously, I cannot see different shades of green when I am knitting.
Find Your Fade by Andrea Mowry. I used mostly Bayview Fiber Arts yarn on the Providence Bay Sock because I love Paula’s colours so much and added the 2016 Rhinebeck colour by Lisa Sousa as a reminder of my first Rhinebeck experience. The final order of the colours was:
- Cleopatra’s Wing
- Cleopatra in the Snow
- 2016 Rhinebeck on Lisa Souza Deluxe Sock!
- Chocolate and Wine
I knit it using a 2.5 mm (US 1) needle because I knit so loose and I wanted a reasonable sized shawl. I have mentioned before that I like stocking stitch to highlight the beautifully coloured hand dyed yarns. But I do like the finished garter stitch particularly with the Chocolate and Wine colour.
I drew first quarter winners from the Stash or Shelf KAL. No entries in the Worsted Weight Socks KAL so I drew two from the FOs in the Stash or Shelf KAL. These two will receive a mini skein and a progress keeper donated by Bayview Fiber Arts. Thank you so much Paula.
I also randomly chose two of the members of the CAWcreations Ravelry Group to win a project bag and CAWcreations pin. Message me on Ravelry if your name was drawn and you do not live on PEI. I need your address to mail out your prize.
Another pair of Barista socks in Diamond Select Footsie colour 523 using 2.5 mm (US 1) needle. I love the rib stitch from Knitter’s Mitts by H.Wulfraat designs so I used it here. I am turning the heel on the second sock so almost finished.
