Unseasonable knitting

 

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!Kettle_Yarn_Co_HEATH_Nutmeg_Marl2

You can see all details on my Ravelry project page.

Happy weekend all!

  1. 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!
