This and that

knitting rubble harpa state street cowl

— I discovered that my beloved friend Meg must have been weaving in the ends on her Big Rubble just as I was writing that post about the pattern. I WANT that sweater. I particularly love the single, mustard-colored pocket Meg added.

— In response to my post about Harpa, Cirilia Rose has suggested she might do a video tutorial about the two-handed colorwork method. Send encouraging vibes her direction, please.

— I’ve started a new Pinterest board specifically for my aforementioned aran fixation, called aran sweaters forever. For anyone else who can’t get enough.

— Turns out the lovely MJK and I both have the State Street Cowl pattern (referenced here) waiting patiently for our attention. Anyone else fancy a knitalong? I’m thinking perhaps we could cast on January 1st?

— Meanwhile, I’m casting on another cowl, using my two treasured skeins of indigo-dyed Sincere Sheep Luminous, held double. I can’t stop caressing my swatch. I’ll have details and a pattern coming up very soon.

  1. I like the ribbing on that sweater. I might try the cowl, but I doubt I could keep up! It’s taken me a month to knit half a brioche scarf.

    This week’s focus is Fiona Ellis and cable design. She’s also doing a free class on cabled necklines that will be available in January.
