No, my husband's name isn't Jon; this is the name of the pattern I'm working on for him. Here is an update on my progress as I work on the front:
This is Filatura Di Crosa's Adhoc yarn, a wool alpaca blend. Not too interesting to look at right now and I call this "Social Knitting" meaning I can knit and chat with my friends at our knitting group without having to tear out mistakes when I get home.
Here are a few things that are more interesting to look at:
This is the Navona sweater by Linda Wilgus and I am so looking forward to making this. My friend Jessica was wearing her version of this at our knitting retreat when I took a picture of her and I really liked the colors:
Linda's project is knit in Malabrigo Sock yarn and I can imagine all kinds of great color combinations done in beautiful hand-dyed yarns.
Stitches will be here in Santa Clara next week and I am going to do my best to keep my yarn purchases in check - hah! I'll be stopping by the Drops booth to purchase some Nepal for this cowl I am planning to make:
This is the Dripstones Cowl by Justyna Lorkowska and she was kind enough to allow me to use her pictures here. Isn't this a lovely pattern? This pattern is written for three different sizes from close fitting cowl to a large shawl style to go over your coat. Looking forward to trying this.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday and have a great weekend!
