Geez Louise, the time just flies by, one day to the next and we’re adding new things to the site and packing Malabrigo Club orders and the next thing I know, it’s been a week since I posted! Without further ado, my completed Rosamund’s Cardigan, knit in Madelinetosh Eyre colorway Thyme and modified to add 3/4 length sleeves. I used 5.5 skeins and US 7 needles. I am marginally obsessed with this sweater and I love the yarn so much I’m already planning another sweater in it.
And speaking of yarn I am marginally obsessed with, we’ve had an amazing week for new shipments of yarn and I can’t knit fast enough. A ton of new colors of Have You Any Wool’s Luxe Sport are just begging to be knit into a great fall weather cardi, and we’ve brought in a fabulous new vendor, Scarlet Fleece. Both of the base yarns we’re starting with are amazing – Silk & Ivory is a heavy fingering/light sport weight silk/wool blend that reminds me of baby kittens, and Painted Merino is a robust yet exceptionally soft and sproingy superwash DK weight yarn that is on my needles as we speak.
On an unrelated note, the blog is having a horrible time with spam lately, so I’m having to manually screen all comments first – apologies for any long delays in comment posting!
