I just realised that I forgot to mention that the shop will be closed tomorrow Friday July 25th and will reopen Tuesday the 29th as I will be at the aforementioned Fibre East.
I am going to leave you with these shots of a super satisfying project I haven’t had time to post about yet, my Bailiwick Pullover by Courtney Spainhower. I finished this in May, but just haven’t had any spare time to blog on it yet!
Knit top down with a saddle shoulder this was a new construction for me and absolutely fascinating to see form.
I will never get tired of trying new knitting techniques and how marvelous they are! 😉
I knit this one a bit smaller than recommended gauge as I wanted to bring the neck in and also removed the eyelet detailing at the bust. It turned out beautifully in my HEATH 100% ethically farmed merino…the colourway is ‘Nutmeg Marl’.
An un-superwash merino, this yarn is truly unique as it has a toothy feel, but remains super soft. The stitch definition is DIVINE!
You can see all details on my Ravelry project page.
Happy weekend all!
That is lovely! I’m not usually a fan of Gansey styles, but I really love this one, probably because you slimmed it down. The yarn looks luscious too!
Thank you Gail. It is a thoroughly modern shape as well…almost curved in the body so it really updates the style. I truly enjoyed knitting it!
Understated and elegant! And of course I noticed your fav motif.. those triangles! Very nice!
Damn…I did it again, didn’t I??? Didn’t even clock it myself. How funny! ;-D
