A Few Yarny Things

Making a little progress here and there. Here’s my “Weekend Jacket” from Interweave Crochet. I splurged and bought the Rowan Cashcotton called for, and am in love. I rarely knit with cottons anymore – hurts my hands – but have had good luck with blends. This one is particularly nice, cotton / angora / cashmere, very luxe:)!

So if I mess up this jacket, I will cry…. So far, so good, hoping to have all three pieces finished by tonight – it’s just the armhole shaping that needs doing.

I finished up the variation on “Porthole Rib” and am counting it for May’s SAM5 KAL. Can’t believe I was finished this early in the month – of course now, I’m jinxed! I’m finally getting the third and final version of Graphic Designer Scarf up for sale on Ravelry. Really happy to have this done – had a bit of a “stall out” with the writing bit – well, misplacing my notes didn’t help either :)!

My 2nd installment of the Wool Girl club arrived and it is beautiful – the yarn is so gorgeous, think I’ll buy more for a sweater. My first Scout’s Swag arrived too – very cool colours in this skein – it may need a unique pattern.

That’s it for now, have a good rest of your weekend!

  1. Hey Karin… your posting has reminded me to say hello – I work with your sister Julie, and I meant to say so some time ago. You really have me wanting to try that Cashcotton… mmmm.


  2. Hi Lissa, I’m so glad you popped in :). I can’t recommend the Cashcotton highly enough – I was totally committed to buying a (pretty good) substitute, but found a good price on the RYC – it is so soft and has nice stitch definition. I can hardly put this thing down :)!
