Both Trimmings samples (one of them knit by the incomparable Deb Barnhill, who I highly recommend as a sample knitter) are blocked, seamed, and awaiting necklines. Which will be easy-peasy to finish by the photoshoot next weekend, since I have some airplane time to fill.
(This weekend, I’m teaching again at Fibre Space, which is one of my favorite places. Both classes are full, but if you’re in the area stay tuned because I’m coming back in August!)
I’ve also made some progress on Caulfield, the design I showed in last post’s swatch.
While there was no way to make the waist shaping completely invisible, I think I’ve managed to keep a nice line for the decreases. I’m really enjoying knitting this stitch–it looks far more complicated than it is, and during flat stretches of fabric I can read while I’m knitting it. (Which is a good thing, because I’ve got a whole other sample in this fabric after the cardigan is done!)
The yarn is Kim’s MCS Sock, which is a gloriously shiny, luscious blend of merino, cashmere, and silk. The colorway is “Bunnies, Bunnies, It Must Be Bunnies!”, which is one of my favorite lines from the Buffy character Anya. Doesn’t it look lovely in the stitch pattern?
What are you knitting these days?
